SMART MODULE RETROFIT PLATFORM
The TS4-R is a retrofit solution that brings smart module functionality to standard PV
modules, for upgrading underperforming PV systems or adding smart features to
new installations. 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,
upgradeable, and accompanied by a powerful PV 2.0 communication backend.
