Yes, a system Discovery can be started at any time of day.
However, it is important to know that the Discovery and confirmation process is more likely to complete faster, if started as close to day break as possible. This is because all of the Tigo TS4s must be active (during sunlight) for the confirmation process to complete. If Discovery is initiated at nightfall, the Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA) will continue to confirm the Tigo MLPEs by serial number after the next sunrise.
Note: Discovery is a one-time event that establishes your Tigo System. It is the CCA's command to download and install the MLPE serial numbers (from when the installer created the online build). This takes a short time to complete, but the confirmation of the individual MLPEs can take up to 24 hours, depending on the size of the system.
Can I re-run a Discovery?
The ability for an Installer to re-run Discovery on a system at anytime, has been removed. Since Discovery is only the installation of serial numbers and confirmation of the system, it is not necessary to re-run the Discover, once the system has been first installed.
Discovery is only necessary when the Data Logger (CCA, CC, MMU) has been replaced or upgraded. If you have replaced your Data Logger, please Contact Tigo Energy Support for assistance.
You will be required to supply this information:
- System ID or Name
- Physical street address of system
- Serial number of the new CCA
