The Tigo Energy Cloud Connect unit is used to communicate between the panel maximizers and the inverter. The Cloud Connect Advanced enables internet connection via Ethernet, Wi-Fi or optional cellular connectivity. It also allows module level disconnect and convenient on-site or remote configuration using Tigo’s mobile app.
The communication unit controls the maximizer’s algorithms and sends information collected from them to a remote server allowing system owners to observe and interact with the management system. The Cloud Connect Advanced unit features a RS-485 to allow third party compatibility. It can read and report data from Modbus equipped inverters, charge controllers, weather stations, smart combiner boxes, and revenue grade meters.
