Product Review: NX Fusion from NEXTracker offers pre-engineered bundled single axis-system solution

NX Fusion includes NEXTracker’s advanced horizontal tracker, NX Horizon (formerly known as the Self-Powered Tracker or SPT), DC wiring, advanced string inverters, UPS, piers, tracker monitoring and control system; and, optionally, PV modules.

NEXTracker has introduced NX Fusion, a product bundle of pre-engineered single-axis tracker and AC power system solutions that integrates a solar power plant’s most critical mechanical and electrical components into a single tracker power block.

Problem
Solar installers require fast-track solutions to meet cost targets. NX Fusion is claimed to eliminate additional DC electrical design work and UPS backup systems, which makes project installation quicker and easier.

Solution
NX Fusion includes NEXTracker’s horizontal tracker, NX Horizon (formerly known as the Self-Powered Tracker or SPT), DC wiring, advanced string inverters, UPS, piers, tracker monitoring and control system; and, optionally, PV modules. All of these components are said to be optimised to work in concert, ensuring rapid installation, cost savings, scalability and maximum energy output for ground-mounted PV systems – eliminating the often complicated system design, permitting, and logistical challenges faced by today’s solar developers. NX Horizon has fewer foundations and assembly points to help mitigate geotechnical risk and accelerate project construction schedules.  With independent rows and high slope tolerance, NX Horizon minimises site preparation costs while enabling greater power density. NX Horizon’s self-grounding and self-powered design provides valuable savings in labour and materials, while its wide rotational range enables PV systems to take full advantage of high irradiance environments, according to NEXTracker.

Applications
Utility-scale PV power plant tracker system for c-Si and thin-film modules.

Platform
NX Fusion also includes on-site weather stations that can guide the array to safe stowing positions within seconds of detecting increasing wind speeds. Quick fixes and diagnoses can now be conducted remotely via sophisticated monitoring systems in addition to locally or on-site, eliminating delays and loss of revenue for mission critical solar power plants.

Availability
Already available.
