NX Navigator

Next-generation smart tracker control system enables PV power plant owners and authorized operators to monitor and securely control their PV systems.

NX Navigator™ gives utility-scale PV plant owners another layer of monitoring and control, increases production yield, and enables reliable operation across a wide range of weather conditions. To learn more, see press release here.

Granular Visualization

NX Navigator’s intuitive graphical user interface helps plant managers monitor timely sitewide information of key parameters. Precise array and angular value data are collected at the site, subfield, and individual tracker levels. Plant operators can instantly locate the tracker equipment on a digital site map, select and command PV arrays into various maintenance modes, filter and identify various tracker states on the digital map, and analyze irradiance and tracker angle heat maps.

Risk Mitigation Features

NX Navigator allows authorized PV plant operators to schedule maintenance operations such as cleaning and mowing, and instantly command the tracker for extreme weather events such as hail, hurricanes, and heavy snow. In the case of hail, a single operator command will rapidly put the entire solar power array to a safe 60-degree stow angle. This action will have the benefit of up to tripling the hail resistance module toughness and dramatically reducing damage potential. In the case of snow shed, an authorized operator can preschedule two snow shed operations in a single day, increasing production by reducing snow cover on solar panels.

Video: RETC Hail-Cannon Testing

Third-party reliability lab Renewable Energy Test Center (RETC) conducted calibrated hail-cannon tests simulating standard PV panels stowed at zero degrees on a conventional solar tracker compared with a standard PV panel stowed at 60 degrees on a typical NEXTracker solar tracker. The video below presents side-by-side slow motion footage of modules undergoing hail-cannon testing in the two stow positions, demonstrating how the 60-degree stow position significantly reduces potential module damage.
