The Lowdown on Solar Panel Optimisers

Solar Panel Optimisers maximise the performance of your solar panel system

A solar panel optimiser is a great way to maximise the performance of your solar panel array. Solar panel optimisers like the  Tigo TS4-A-O use maximum power point tracking to improve the output of each solar panel in a PV array.

What are the benefits of solar panel optimisers?

Solar Panel Optimisers help improve the overall performance of a Solar PV system. Certain conditions such as shading from trees or coverage from dust or snow can cause some panels within your solar panel array to perform below their potential. A solar panel optimiser allows the rest of the panels to operate as normal.

A solar optimiser can be included with your array at the time of installation or retrofitted at a later date so you can get the most from your solar PV system.

How do solar panel optimisers work?

Maximum Power Point Tracking, or MPPT for short, is the technology behind the solar panel optimiser. The optimiser monitors the maximum power of each solar panel every minute of operation. It then regulates the voltage before transmitting it to the solar inverter. The benefit to the user is that regardless of how other panels in the system perform the system will reach maximum energy delivery.

The Tigo TS4-A-O Solar Panel Optimiser

The TS4-A-O Optimiser is the advanced solar optimisation solution that can be added to your solar panel installation or retrofitted to an existing PV array. The Tigo brings smart module functionality to standard PV modules for higher reliability. We love the Tigo TS4-A-O as it is easy to install and improves energy efficiency simply.

The TS4-A-O has UHD-Core technology and expanded specifications to support PV modules up to 700W. It snaps to standard module frames or the brackets can be removed so that it can be mounted to the rack. What's more it can be smart commissioned and configured with your Android or iOS mobile device. Connecting the optimiser to the Tigo Cloud Connected Advanced Kit also activates the built-in monitoring and rapid shutdown features.
