Yaskawa Solectria Solar Joins Tigo Enhanced Initiative
Yaskawa Solectria Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Yaskawa America Inc., has joined the Tigo Enhanced initiative to provide customers with simple and reliable quick shutdown solutions that meet all security and code requirements.
All Solectria inverters that are equipped with Tigo Enhanced are immediately ready for use with the latest generation of Tigo quick disconnection devices.
“We are excited to participate in the Tigo Enhanced program to raise awareness of our solutions and make it as easy as possible for our customers to meet safety and certification requirements,” said Mark Goodreau, General Manager of Yaskawa Solectria Solar.
Solectria’s Tigo Enhanced inverters have integrated Tigo’s RSS transmitter that communicates with Tigo’s rapid shutdown devices and have completed PVRSS (UL PV Rapid Shutdown System) certification. The following inverters are part of the program:
-Solectria PVI 60TL (3 phases, 60 kW, 480 V AC)
-Solectria PVI 50TL (3 phases, 50 kW, 480 V AC)
-Solectria PVI 25TL-208 (3 phases, 25 kW, 208 V AC)
-Solectria PVI 25TL-480-R (3-phase, 25 kW, 480 V AC)
Yaskawa Solectria Solar and Tigo received UL PVRSS certification after testing the inverter and emergency shutdown devices for compatibility and safety. The certification fulfills a necessary safety requirement for the rapid PV shutdown in the National Electrical Code. Rooftop PV installations in the vast majority of the US now require fast shutdown devices
The Solectria inverters and Tigo shutdown devices are available for purchase from leading dealers in the United States
