    That's a great question, Wesley. RS-485 has a range of 4000 feet, but I will check with our engineers to see if the CCA has enough oomf for 350 feet.

    Hello Wesley D

    Thank you for you contribution to the Tigo Community. 

    The TAP is hard-wired to the CCA, so the distance is set by the guage of the wire itself. For more information on which types of wire will increase distance, please see our article on:

    In some designs, the CCA and TAP are mounted on one roof and cast towards another. For these types of designs, it is important to note that the TAP communicates in a radius pattern of 33ft / 10m. 

    Tigo has some great articles on this subject:

    I checked with our engineers and a 350 foot connection between the CCA and TAP is fine. However, only if you are using one TAP and the CCA is powered with a 24V power supply.

    If you are using multiple TAPs, you should install the CCA as close to the array as possible to minimize the voltage drop between the multiple TAPs. This could cause abnormal behavior. To clarify, is this what you are asking?

    Here is a Help Center article on the CCA wiring
