The UL-certified TS4-A-2F complies with NEC 2017 690.12 Rapid Shutdown specifications when installed with Tigo’s UL-certified RSS Transmitter or an inverter with Tigo's built-in RSS Transmitter. The unit’s powerline communication can be easily verified with Tigo’s RSS Signal Detector. System owners can ensure safety by upgrading existing PV systems or by adding these safety features to new installations. With this improved lightweight hardware, lower labor costs, and application for two modules, the TS4-A-2F is quickly becoming the most adopted rapid shutdown solution in the industry.

The highlights of TS4-A-2F include: 

  • Maximum Total Power is 1000W for two modules
  • Maximum Current is 15A per input
  • Available as 1500V UL
  • UL-certified as NEC 2017 Rapid Shutdown Solution
  • Snap to standard module frame or rack mounting
  • Module-level deactivation with automatic or manual shutdown
  • PV array enters rapid shutdown in event of AC grid loss
  • Powerline communication (PLC) signaling
  • Smaller unit dimensions with reduced weight per unit by 25% 
  • Reduced shipping costs with 33% more units per pallet
  • Recessed mounting allows shipments of pre-assembled PV modules
  • Improved heat dissipation with over-temperature and over-voltage protection
  • Improved IP68 rating for greater outdoor exposure

Tigo’s TS4-A-2F will showcase at the Solar Power International (SPI) Exhibition Hall in Salt Lake City, Utah September 24 – 26, 2019. The UL-listed inverters with Tigo’s rapid shutdown solution showing at SPI include CPS (Booth 2201), Fronius (Booth 2019), GoodWe (Booth 2609), SolaX Power (Booth 719), Yaskawa Solectria Solar (Booth 2125), and more. The smart module manufacturers integrated with Tigo showing at SPI include GCL (Booth 1001), JA Solar (Booth 1219), Phono Solar (Booth 301), Suntech (Booth 211), Vikram Solar (4055), and more. To schedule an appointment or for an introduction to one of Tigo's manufacturing partners at SPI, contact sales@tigoenergy.com.

“Tigo’s TS4-A-2F is the most cost-effective rapid shutdown solution on the market today thanks to the accommodation of two modules,” says Zvi Alon, Chairman & CEO at Tigo. “Our inverter and module manufacturing partners see the value in this solution due to its readiness for new or existing systems of any size. Solar Power International is the perfect event to launch while we can collaborate with our many tier one partners to offer this UL-certified solution.”

Tigo’s TS4-A-2F is shipping with module manufacturers and distributors worldwide. This unit joins the other advanced retrofit/add-on units announced earlier this year: TS4-A-F (Fire Safety), TS4-A-O (Optimization), and TS4-A-O-Duo (Optimization per 2 modules).

KA Imaging’s X-ray Detector Allows Any X-ray System to Be Upgraded to Dual-Energy27.2.2020 11:00:00 EETPress release

Canadian manufacturer KA Imaging is preparing to launch Reveal, a premium x-ray detector that upgrades any x-ray system to Dual-Energy. “Reveal is the ideal retrofit solution as it will fit into any ISO standard size tray”, explains Amol Karnick, president and CEO of KA Imaging. Thanks to this feature, the cost of implementation can be reduced to a fraction of the price: whereas conventional dual exposure dual-energy systems can cost as high as half a million dollars, KA Imaging’s Reveal can be obtained at a quarter of this price. “You can simply replace your old detector with Reveal, as it will work with any conventional portable or fixed x-ray source”, continues Amol. The competitive pricing strategy is just one of the advantages. KAI developed a unique technology that can improve dual-energy x-ray images. Reveal is the world’s first portable digital detector capable of separating different energy levels with a single exposure. It delivers three images: traditional DR, soft tissue an

DSB to Divest Spare Part Workshops27.2.2020 10:00:00 EETPress release

Due to structural changes DSB is investigating the market with a view to divesting the activities at the workshops which deliver and maintain spare parts for the trains. Until 2030, Fremtidens Tog (Future Trains) will gradually replace the train sets that DSB is currently operating. This implies that DSB will no longer have the same need to operate its own spare part workshops. Besides, DSB’s coming generation of electric train sets, Fremtidens Tog, are to be maintained by the train supplier and not by DSB, meaning that DSB will have fewer options to redeploy staff from the spare part workshops. Therefore DSB is now transferring the areas of Supply, Logistics & Refurbishment to an independent company to investigate a divestment to a private third party in collaboration with SEB Corporate Finance. As part of this potential transaction, DSB will enter into an agreement with the divested company for delivery and maintenance of spare parts until 2024 with an extension option. As an indepen
