Tigo Access Point – comms between TS4 to Cloud Connect with mesh technology
The TAP (Tigo Access Point) is Tigo's latest wireless antenna. It is the new and improved model, it replaces the Tigo Gateway and has the same function. Like the Gateway, the TAP allows wireless communication between the Cloud Connect Advanced (CCA) and the TS4 optimizers (wireless communication between TS4 Optimisers and TAP and wired RS485 connection between TAP and CCA). Tigo TAP utilises ‘mesh’ technology which allows each Tigo TS4 optimiser to act as a repeater, extending the range of TAP. The signal and data can hop from TS4 to TS4 along many different paths. As long as the TS4 optimisers are not more than 10m from each other, the TAP total range including ‘hops’ is 35m.
