A rapid shutdown function is required for PV systems to comply with the U.S. National Electric Code (NEC).

APsystems says Tigo Energy has withdrawn claims against APsystems parent company, Zhejiang Yuneng Technology.

In an amended complaint that Tigo filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in August, Tigo amended its complaint to remove all claims against the parent company.

APsystems says the move is confirmation that there is no evidence that its parent company has committed any act that Tigo can accuse of infringement.

Back in June, Tigo filed a lawsuit against APsystems, seeking to hold the company accountable for its willful infringement of Tigo patents related to rapid shutdown technology.

Tigo notified APsystems in person and APsystems emailed pvbuzz.com with a response that said:
“APsystems has always worked diligently to conceive and develop its own proprietary intellectual property.”

APsystems is currently working with its legal team to respond to Tigo’s updated complaint by October 19, 2020. A Case Management Conference is scheduled with the judge on October 28, 2020, at which time APsystems will learn more about the judge’s thoughts on case scheduling and procedure.
