Introducing: NX Navigator Control & Monitoring System
The NX NavigatorTM next-generation smart tracker control system enables PV power plant owners and authorized operators to monitor and securely control their PV systems as well as increase production yield and facilitate reliable operation across a wide range of weather conditions.

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 above 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.
