JA Solar has selected Tigo Energy to optimize its newly launched JA smart module line. The smart module product integrates Tigo’s technology into the junction box, resulting in high conversion efficiency, enhanced safety, improved panel-level monitoring, and the use of up to 30% longer strings.

“Smart modules are an important advance for the entire industry,” said Mr. Yong Liu, Chief Operating Officer of JA Solar. “Tigo’s solution helps us meet our customers’ high expectations for functionality and reliability.”

Technology from Tigo Energy is able to meet JA Solar’s standard. For instance, Tigo recently announced that its optimizing solution meets the NEC rapid shutdown requirements in the U.S., enabling JA’s smart modules to thus satisfy the requirements set by the new 2014 code. In general, all JA Solar products are manufactured through an automated, in-house procedure, which was inspected and certified by PI-Berlin and Solar-IF. In addition to successful PID certification, the Company’s products are certified by TÜV SÜD and ETL for long-term reliability, harsh climate environment endurance, and other additional certifications.

“We have worked hard to become the number one technology provider for the smart module industry,” said Zvi Alon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Tigo Energy. “Selection by JA Solar of our technology strongly validates the technology and business model that we developed. We are excited to offer this integrated solution to our mutual customers.”

JA Solar’s smart module is currently available and will be on display at the Solar Power International conference in Las Vegas from October 21 to 23, 2014.
