Identify your Tigo Data Logger
There are three Tigo data loggers:
Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA)
The Tigo Energy data loggers require an Internet network that is used to transfer data to servers in order to monitor solar panel production.
If you have a Firewall for your network, see the bottom...
When your Tigo system completes the Discovery process, the automatic shutdown features of TS4-S, -O, and -L are enabled. This means that the system's TS4's will require communication f...
