TÜV Rheinland awarded Tigo Energy the industry’s first ever certification for SmartModules, recognizing the company for embedding its junction box in PV modules for the North America and European solar markets. Since Tigo Energy is the first to go through this certification process, it states that it actually helped develop testing standards for SmartModules.
The company noted that over two years, it help coordinate a joint engineering effort with junction box and module manufacturers through product testing to ensure high reliability, safety and performance. “We believe that smart modules will revolutionize the market for PV optimizers, micro-inverters and the solar industry as a whole,” said Sam Arditi, CEO, Tigo Energy. “Integrated SmartModules will change the way our customers harvest energy and maintain solar arrays while also keeping them electrically safe. We are proud to partner with a selected number of leading module manufacturers to make SmartModules a reality.”
