Tigo TS4 Product Interview
The Tigo TS4 has been released to the market and it is an effeciency monitoring tool for any solar panel technology. We have captured an interview below to discuss the features and latest technology released by Tigo.
Speaker 0: Do you go they have great colors but they also sold one of my problems I have a bunch of panels on my roof which basically have shadow every day and they basically messed everything up and Teagle has a problem because I can install this behind one of my panels and it will solve all my problems now let's see how that works this is golden optimize our rights how does it work.
Speaker 2: It's looks very simple it automatically checks how much the panel is producing and if there is any obstacle before locked out a new to automatically extract the maximum energy without any set up.
Speaker 0: Yeah so it basically it works that if there's a net shadow the voltage goes down the average goes up and the screen keeps on working.
Speaker 2: That's correct.
Speaker 0: So that's a very simple beautiful function and its souls my shadow problem.
Speaker 2: Any talks was any inventive so you don't even need to know which involved a tease you just install it and it's obvious fixes the problem.
Speaker 0: Yeah okay so I basically put that behind my panel but there's method that that is the first problem that much you can do that's a you can do that so after the fact you can install it after this season after installation but you also have one which basically works inside panels and comes with the panels right click you can get small panels today from various manufacturers.
Speaker 2: They settled.
Speaker 0: In.
Speaker 2: Integrated version of these and he all this whole bunch of.
Speaker 2: Options that you have a different price points.
Speaker 0: Yeah so this is the this is the one to press one.
Speaker 2: Yes.
Speaker 0: It does everything it optimizes my shadow problem and then it goes up from there what what what what what are the other functions.
Speaker 2: The best one is this one that includes optimization literature down Monique telling all the the shipping then you go down in price to optimization money telling only then you go to lipid shut down full fire protection and safety and then you go to money telling on late for lesser price and the last one is essentially proving the efficiency of the panel was out in the place.
Speaker 0: And that's what Aidid optimizing my up and let's see how it works because.
Speaker 2: They.
Speaker 0: Make this panel smart to me that's the idea you'll you'll optimize them but also you connect them and let's see why that is interesting how does it work I put one of these inverters behind every panel how do they communicate together.
Speaker 2: Those guys communicate wirelessly with each and everyone of them.
Speaker 0: And.
Speaker 2: They actually communicate so decent tena which is connected to the cloud connect the clock and it collects all the information from all the devices and then filter and brings it up to the cloud how does the user get the benefits they go through a mobile application all the browser.
Speaker 0: Yeah.
Speaker 2: To the cloud and they get all the information we have at home and I mean.
Speaker 0: You say information but you can see exactly what panel works and I are why it doesn't work and when it doesn't work and why it doesn't work and you get a huge very very detailed view of what's working on my roof and what's not.
Speaker 2: Absolutely you get information about the wattage how much power generated the voltage to Colin to temperature you can identify specific panels that all she did specific panels that'll broken specific business which have too much dust you clean them up and you get all the benefits.
Speaker 0: And it also takes the information from the inverter which is connected to this cloud so I get all the also that information I see how much is produced per day and per week per month and and you are from Silicon Valley so you know how to write software.
Speaker 2: That is absolutely correct as a matter of fact you might see to dinner one day and get the.
Speaker 2: The law firm assistant tell you today your system was sick now so you'll do you know right away you don't even need to think about it it'll help you make more money.
Speaker 0: Yeah okay so let's see how it works if I install this after the facts and and and and one optimize my my panels do I need to put one behind every panel.
Speaker 2: Absolutely not you go only to the pedestal to the quietly so as a matter of fact we will recommend stock was money telling only this is the blue one.
Speaker 0: And.
Speaker 2: Put them behind the panels at least you know what's going on and then it will tell you which famously quite a little bit more boost you go to those panels to pull de ello.
Speaker 0: And.
Speaker 2: Voila you fix the problem.
Speaker 0: Size I think it's wonderful I know I only have problems with this one and this one and this one and I only need to put it behind the rest always works so it's very it's very it's yeah if I on the other hand if I say Hey I do a new insulation and I have twenty panels I can it's it's very cheap to be added to by the panels with this smart said that due to my by smart panels and if I don't want to or basically to see this information do I pay you per month to see that information or is it to.
Speaker 2: Absolutely fully as a fifty you can get the information for the rest of her life for free if you're interested in getting special money telling special a little to not not did you pass something like twenty dollars a year which is very cheap okay.
Speaker 0: Okay so you make panel so smart I mean how did this come about how does to to go to get started in this field.
Speaker 2: So take a good solid into Silicon Valley by a bunch of very technical guys will figure out the way he smoked way too excitable energy from the panels I came about to tell you about three full years after they started and they saw an opportunity to come up with not one single solution that fits all but actually come up with the whole family based at different price points and what was driving it was really the fact that people like yourself who have systems but they don't know which buttons don't work and I was surprised and shocked to figure out to mean how can we spend so much money and you don't know what's working.
Speaker 0: Yeah because I mean one panel.
Speaker 0: Can mess everything up it can just reduce my power with about sixty percent because that stupid panel has a high resistance and and and lower low power.
Speaker 2: Absolutely every single penalties that connected to the V. is impacting all the other panels and it's another this one introducing only ten percent less it'll impact if you have a twenty.
Speaker 2: Total system by twenty thirty percent to lose energy.
Speaker 0: Yeah okay and if you take everything you do the monitoring of the fire protection and that any how much does it add to the price of the system.
Speaker 2: It's about six seven hundred you'll it's about less than ten percent.
Speaker 0: That is really good okay thank you very much good products you're good to go.
