Schneider Electric and Tigo launch MPPT Disconnect RS
By Kavita Sabharwal-Chomiuk
Schneider Electric and Tigo have teamed up to launch the MPPT Disconnect RS (Rapid Shutdown), an accessory for Schneider Electric’s Conext MPPT Solar Charge Controllers for rapid shutdown PV arrays with Tigo TS4-F (Fire Safety).
These hybrid solar and storage solutions are certified for use in Canada and the U.S. with both DC coupled and AC coupled PV arrays.
For DC coupled arrays with Conext MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) Solar Charge Controllers, the new MPPT Disconnect RS is an easily installed accessory that integrates a rapid shutdown transmitter and arc fault detection with a photovoltaic (PV) disconnect switch.
The MPPT Disconnect RS is compatible with the Conext MPPT 80 600 and MPPT 60 150 Charge Controllers and is certified with Tigo’s TS4-F (Fire Safety) for module level rapid shutdown using powerline communication.
