Lightway Solar has launched its new LWSS Smart Module, which will use technology from Tigo Energy.

Lightway says the modules feature integrated power optimization that enables the solar module to perform module-level max power point tracking to maximize system yield and increase design flexibility. The line also features panel-level deactivation capability for enhanced photovoltaic safety, as well as panel-level monitoring for operations and maintenance efficiency.

The company says the line also has a new feature that limits the maximum voltage of the solar module, enabling up to 30% longer string designs than traditional modules. This feature uses Tigo Energy technology to limit the maximum voltage output from the solar module, which, according to Lightway, effectively cuts off the unwanted part of the IV curve.
