GoodWe Introduces Rapid Shutdown Inverter Series To Accommodate Worldwide Smart Modules with Tigo
Offering a streamlined solution through 8 smart inverters with real-time system data via Tigo’s CCA datalogger.
September 13, 2017 – GoodWe, inverter manufacturer and energy storage provider, today announced its partnership with Tigo®, pioneer of the smart modular Flex MLPE platform, to deliver eight smart inverters to its Rapid Shutdown series. Tigo’s Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA) datalogger powers GoodWe inverters as a UL-certified Rapid Shutdown System with all smart modules. These smart inverters include DNS and DT models for residential and commercial PV systems.
By utilizing Tigo’s CCA, GoodWe inverters are offering a streamlined solution that pair perfectly with smart modules. This enables end users to harness more system data for valuable insights about real-time analysis in GoodWe’s monitoring platform. This solution also enables cost-effective datalogging to collect operating information from the inverters as well as each smart module. Customers save money with an integrated GoodWe inverter because the datalogger is already inside – instead of three separate purchases for a datalogger, additional inverter, and optimizers. Compared with other optimizer systems, GoodWe offers a new solution which is more affordable, highly efficient and easier to install.
GoodWe’s smart inverters were tested and validated by Tigo for operational compliance with all TS4 Platform covers. Tigo’s flexible module-level power electronic (Flex MLPE) technology offers fully integrated monitoring via an online platform; scalability for residential and commercial systems; UL compliance for Rapid Shutdown requirements; and compatibility with all smart modules using Tigo’s TS4.
“We are excited to announce a partner relationship with Tigo using TS4. Our entire range of solar inverters completed the compliance assessment with Tigo’s smart module platform,” said Huang Min, GM of GoodWe. The DNS inverter series (3kW to 5kW) and SDT inverter series (4kW to 10 kW) are now available worldwide.
“GoodWe has already integrated Tigo’s Cloud Connect Advanced into two series of inverters,” confirms Juan Martinez, Product Manager of Tigo. “Together, we continue to offer our customers enhanced value and flexibility.”
