IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
LETHAL VOLTAGE MAY BE PRESENT IN ANY PV INSTALLATION
•
•
This manual contains important instructions for installation and
maintenance of the Tigo Energy® product models TS4-L, TS4-O,
TS4-S, TS4-M, TS4-R-M, TS4-R-S, TS4-R-O, ES-GTWY-020,
Cloud Connect, Cloud Connect Advanced and related Tigo Energy
software applications.
Risk of electric shock, do not remove cover, disassemble, or repair,
no user serviceable parts inside. Refer servicing to qualified
service personnel.
•
Before installing or using the Tigo Energy® System, please read all
instructions and warning markings on the Tigo Energy products,
appropriate sections of your inverter manual, photovoltaic (PV)
module installation manual, and other available safety guides.
•
Failure to adhere to these instructions may result in injury or death,
damage to the system or voiding the factory warranty.
•
To reduce risk of fire and shock hazard, install this device with
strict adherence to National Electric Code (NEC) ANSI/NFPA 70
and/or local electrical codes. When the photovoltaic array is
exposed to light, it supplies a DC voltage to the Tigo Energy®
Module Maximizer™. The Module Maximizers and Smart Modules
start in the “ON” state and their output voltage may be as high as
the PV module open circuit voltage (Voc) when connected to the
module. The installer should use the same caution when handling
electrical cables from a PV module with or without the Tigo Energy
Module Maximizer attached.
•
Installation must be performed by trained professionals only. Tigo
Energy does not assume liability for loss or damage resulting from
improper handling, installation, or misuse of products.
•
Remove all metallic jewelry prior to installing the Tigo Energy
Module Maximizers or Smart Modules to reduce the risk of
contacting live circuitry. Do not attempt to install in inclement
weather.
•
Do not operate the Tigo Energy Module Maximizers or Smart
Modules if they have been physically damaged. Check existing
cables and connectors, ensuring they are in good condition and
appropriate in rating. Do not operate Tigo Energy Module
Maximizers or Smart Modules with damaged or substandard wiring
or connectors. Tigo Energy Module Maximizers must be mounted
on the high end of the PV module back-sheet or racking system,
and in any case above ground.
•
Do not connect or disconnect under load. Turning off the Inverter
and/or the Tigo Energy products may not reduce this risk. Internal
capacitors within the inverter can remain charged for several
minutes after disconnecting all power sources. Verify capacitors
have discharged by measuring voltage across inverter terminals
prior to disconnecting wiring if service is required.
•
Service Personnel: Check the voltage of the array after activating
the Tigo Energy® PV-Safe™ function on the MMU prior to
performing service.
•
Always assume Module Maximizers and Smart Modules are in
“ON” state, or may turn on when restarting.

6. COMMISSIONING
CC MENU:
To commission the Tigo equipment there are 3 simple steps that need to be
completed:
1. Status
1.1. Modules
1. NETWORK TEST
1.1.1. Signal
2. GATEWAY TEST
1.1.2. Voltage
3. DISCOVERY
1.1.3. Power
For systems with multiple Cloud Connect units, these tests need to be
performed on each individual Cloud Connect .
1.2. Date / Time
Network and Gateway tests can run at the same time on different CCs.
However, Discovery must be initiated on Cloud Connects one by one, making
sure GTWY discovery stage is complete before moving to the next one.
1.4.Version
This may take several minutes to several hours depending on the size of the
system.
Note: The discovery process can be initiated for
sites with more than 50 Smart Modules only after the
online configuration of the system has been
completed and downloaded by the Cloud Connect.
1.3. Unit ID
1.5. Config (internal use only)
2. Control
2.1. Discovery
2.2. Modules ON
2.3. Push Data
2.4. Restart
.
This step requires an Internet connection.
2.5. Gateway Test
2.6. Replace GW
To Commission the system using your smartphone, download the Tigo SMART app
and follow its instructions. CLICK HERE to view the manual.
2.7. H/W Test (internal use only)
3. Network
VERIFY RAPID SHUTDOWN FUNCTIONALITY
3.1. Display IP
Verify rapid shutdown functionality after the discovery process is
completed.
3.2. Test
Switch off the AC main and make sure voltage drops below 30V
within 10 seconds. Power the system on after testing using:
3.4. Set Proxy
3.3. Configure
3.5. Renew
2. Control -> 2.2. Modules ON
Click for description
7. RAPID SHUTDOWN
TS4-L, TS4-O, and TS4-S with Kaco Blueplanet Smart Inverter and Gateway are a solution to meet NEC 2014 690.12
Rapid Shutdown requirements, when combined with a DC disconnect at the inverter.
When Rapid Shutdown is initiated, the voltage across PV conductors will drop below 30V within 10 seconds at the
module level.
Rapid Shutdown is activated by taking 2 simple actions.
To activate rapid shutdown (with most inverters order of actions doesn’t matter):
1. Switch off DC disconnect as well to disconnect capacitors.
2. Switch OFF AC main to deactivate system.
In the inverter’s box you’ll find 2 red labels to mark the Rapid Shutdown equipment. Place one sticker next to the
inverter’s DC switch and the other on the AC main breaker. Both labels must be visible!
Only a properly installed, configured, and tested system will perform Rapid Shutdown properly.

8. CONNECTING MODBUS DEVICES (OPTIONAL)
INSTALLATION:
1. Verify device settings for AC
meter, inverter, etc. in its own
installation manual
2. Connect devices to RS-485 port
on CC or CCA (note: similar
devices can be connected in
series)
3. Contact Tgo Tech Support to
