Nextronex has launched the ‘RAY-MAX’ Power Podium which integrates the RAY-MAX Inverters, MV Load Centers, DC Bus Power Strip and the Smart Controller on a factory installed platform, allowing for simple and fast-track field installation. Factory wiring and testing are designed to provide the required quality control. Nextronex Distributed Architecture is claimed to deliver up to 8% more energy output.
Large-scale PV power plants are under constant pressure to reduce installations cost for key capital equipment such as PV inverters. Adopting systems that provide fast installation times and increased efficiency, while maintaining IRR are essential for any projects success.
The RAY-MAX Power Podium simplifies on-site wiring, facilitates construction scheduling and reduces field concrete and labor expenses. All equipment is pre-assembled onto the platform, fully wired and pre-tested. The ‘Power Podium’ offers a plug-and-play solution that requires only simple AC and DC connections in the field. Nextronex is able to offer the Power Podium configurations to matches the specific design needs of the client and the site.
Large-scale PV arrays of 150kW and larger.
The Power Podium maintains the advantages of the Nextronex Distributed Architecture with greater energy production, significantly higher reliability, and increased equipment longevity. The Smart Controllers handle all master/slave coordination, control, telemetry functions and real-time monitoring. Additionally, the low profile design facilitates center array inverter placement minimizing shading and provides significant wiring savings.
April 2014 onwards.
