Yaskawa Solectria Solar has joined the Tigo Enhanced initiative, aimed at providing customers with simple and reliable rapid shutdown solutions that meet all safety and code requirements. All Solectria inverters that are Tigo Enhanced are plug-and-play out of the box with Tigo’s latest generation rapid shutdown devices.

“We are excited to join the Tigo Enhanced program to generate more awareness about our solutions and make fulfilling safety and certification requirements as easy as possible for our customers,” said Mark Goodreau, General Manager of Yaskawa Solectria Solar.

Solectria’s Tigo Enhanced inverters have integrated Tigo’s RSS transmitter – that communicates with Tigo’s rapid shutdown devices – and completed UL PV Rapid Shutdown System (PVRSS) certification. The following inverters are part of the program:

  •    -   Solectria PVI 60TL (3 phase, 60kW, 480Vac)
  •    -   Solectria PVI 50TL (3 phase, 50kW, 480Vac)
  •    -   Solectria PVI 25TL-208 (3 phase, 25kW, 208Vac)
  •    -   Solectria PVI 25TL-480-R (3 phase, 25kW, 480Vac)

Customers can now look for the Tigo Enhanced logo on Solectria’s inverters and know that they are getting a product that seamlessly works with Tigo’s rapid shutdown devices.

“We have worked with Yaskawa Solectria Solar for a long time and are honored to have them as a partner in the Tigo Enhanced program,” said Dru Sutton, VP of Sales for North America at Tigo Energy. “Ultimately, this is about providing assurance to customers that when they choose a Solectria inverter that is Tigo Enhanced, they know they’re getting a reliable, proven, certified rapid shutdown solution.”

Yaskawa Solectria Solar and Tigo received UL PVRSS certification after testing the inverter and rapid shutdown devices for compatibility and safety. The certification fulfills a necessary safety requirement for PV Rapid Shutdown in the National Electrical Code. Rapid shutdown devices are now required with rooftop PV installations across the vast majority of the United States.

The companies are hosting a live webinar on Thursday, November 19 at 10am PT (1pm ET) to highlight their combined rapid shutdown solutions for commercial PV customers. Interested parties can register here.

Motor Disconnect SwitchesMotor disconnects are more than simple on-off devices to satisfy lockout-tagout requirements. They have become an integral part of the motor control circuit as disconnects increasingly offer control functions, such as auxiliary contact interface, added selector switches and push buttons.

Disconnects can be fusible or non-fusible and can have different pole arrangements and environmental ratings. Multiple disconnects can be packed into one enclosure, saving space and cost while allowing you to address varied requirements, including harsh food processing or washdown applications.

Advanced Sensing Solutions for Cost-Effective Machine Building

Omron IOLinkSensing technology has a major presence in manufacturing machinery. It provides the foundation for maintaining consistent quality and detecting any lapses in machine performance. If subtle changes in the physical properties of a machine can cause it to fail, then the sensors responsible for detecting those changes can save manufacturers lengthy downtime and repair costs.

In addition to helping cut maintenance costs, sensors also present an opportunity to make the machines more cost-efficient. Whether through their resistance to harsh chemicals or their ability to reduce the overall machine footprint, the right sensors can make a huge difference.
