What is Bulk Scan?
Bulk Scan is a feature that allows you to quickly add all TS4s to the System Layout with only one scan from your smartphone's camera.
How does it work?
Once the TS4 serial number QR stickers have been added to the Site Layout sheet (found on the back page of the EI Inverter Quick Start Guide), the installer can use their smartphone camera to take a picture of the entire grid layout. The individual stickers will be automatically uploaded to the EI App and placed in the same position as the sticker layout. This ensures the array position is accurate and the TS4s are properly paired to their respective module.
The following instructions will work for a Tigo EI Residential Storage Solution (up to 72 TS4 units).
- On the Site Layout Sheet provided, apply the TS4 serial stickers in the exact position they are aligned in the array. You may place the stickers at 45/90 degree angles, and it will pick up the angle in the bulk scan.
Note: Currently, this feature only supports a maximum of 72 modules. If you have more than 72 modules, add your serial numbers using one of the methods here:
Create and Edit System - Using EI Portal (Desktop).
Proceed through the Commissioning process until you reach the Commissioning Home Screen. Choose Configure Layout.
⚠️ ATTENTION! Before performing Step 4 (below), please be aware that the Bulk Scan function will delete any existing layout, on the system, so make sure that this is the step that you want to take.
- Select Bulk Scan button at bottom.
- Position the camera over the scanning grid so that at least 1 QR code imprinted on the four corners is visible with the entire sticker pattern.
- Confirm the PV modules are in their correct positions, and the TS4 numbers are correct for those positions. Move modules as necessary to reposition serial number locations.
Note: All stickers must be scanned to complete this section. If there are missing serial number stickers after bulk scanning, the EI App will prompt you to take additional pictures of the missing serial numbers.
For example, if 10 modules are entered in the Select Equipment phase of commissioning but only 9 stickers from the Bulk Scan sheet are automatically added to the EI App Layout Canvas, the EI App will not let you proceed until the last sticker is added.
