For add-on optimizers in the ES or 2ES series, and for the first generation of smart modules, a Cloud Connect and Gateway are required.
The Cloud Connect is the latest version of the Management Unit. Customers with an MMU do not need to also have a Cloud Connect.
For systems with TS4, a Cloud Connect is only required for data logging or rapid shutdown. If monitoring and rapid shutdown are not desired, TS4-O and TS4-L can be installed without a Cloud Connect and still provide optimization (and longer strings if using TS4-L.)
|Product||Cloud Connect required?|
|ES series optimizer (ES50, ES75, ES110, ES170)||Yes|
|2ES series dual optimizer (2ES50, 2ES75)||Yes|
|JES series smart module junction box||Yes|
|TS4-D (diodes only)||No|
|TS4-O (optimization)||Only for monitoring or rapid shutdown|
|TS4-L (long strings)||Only for monitoring or rapid shutdown|
