Tigo platform and SMA: module level monitoring

SMA through the Tigo platform meets all system requirements, whether it is simple monitoring at the module level but also shutdown it for security reasons imposed by firefighters but even if the energy performance is influenced by various orientations or shadows on some modules.

Tigo platform solutions for every module’s needs

With the Tigo platform each module can be equipped with the Smart technology that serves it.

The substantial difference between traditional systems and Tigo’s Smart Module TS4 technology is right here, only the “problematic” module will be equipped with the appropriate electronics so you only install the function that actually serves without waste of time and money and therefore with a best return on the investment.

The Tigo TS4 platform is developed in three solutions that adapt to the individual need and thanks to the replaceable covers you can modify the system quickly and easily.

The Smart Cover are:
• Module monitoring (blue cover)
• Electrical module power / off switch (red cover)
• Optimization (yellow cover)

So that you can have the most effective solution at the lowest cost for new system or in retrofit.

Easy and fast to install

The Tigo TS4 electronics are plugged into all modules easily and quickly with the use of just one screwdriver even directly on site with lower logistic costs and lower installation time.

The Smart Module SMA solution Tigo TS4, in addition to the power electronics, has two additional components needed: the gateway for wireless connectivity of up to 120 TS4 devices and Cloud Connect, which allows data collected from the gateway and send to the Sunny Portal, so you have control the situation everywhere.

The Smart Module Tigo TS4 system is perfect for coupling with SMA inverters because of the maximum flexibility these inverters offer thanks to the wide range of input voltages and multiple MPPT trackers, you can also meet the most complex roofs with shadows and multiple orientations so as to provide flexible, quality and fair price solutions, thus guaranteeing maximum plant profitability.

The 3 focal points of the Smart Module Tigo TS4 Solution are: more flexibility thanks to the 3 devices that only do what is needed for that particular module, greater yield thanks to optimization and lower costs since I purchase and install only what I need.

Tigo: TS4-R


The TS4 universal platform enables you to choose the exact options you need for any given project or customer, from safety features to module-level diagnostics and maximized energy harvest.

  • TS4-L Long Strings (cover green)
  • TS4-O Optimization (cover yellow)
  • TS4-S Safety (cover red)
  • TS4-M Monitoring (cover blu)
  • TS4-D Diodes (cover white)

The TS4-R is a retrofit solution that brings smart module functionality to standard PV modules. The TS4-R retrofit base can be matched with one of several electronic covers to address a range of functions and budgets. Together they form a new generation of module-level power electronics; flexible, replaceable, and upgradeable, accompanied by a powerful PV 2.0 communication backend.

5 cover:

  • TS4-L Long Strings, ideal for systems requiring fully optimized performance at the module level (cover green)
  • TS4-O Optimization, ideal for roofs which are challenged by shading, but do not need longer strings (cover yellow)
  • TS4-S Safety, provides the necessary safety and monitoring services to ensure your systems meet local fire regulations (cover red)
  • TS4-M Monitoring, enables continuous system-wide monitoring for fleets to aid in customer support and ongoing operations and maintenance (cover blu)
  • TS4-D Diodes with diodes embedded in the cover of the junction box, this basic system enables OEMs to standardize (cover white)
