NX Horizon: Field-Proven Performance and Reliability
The Industry’s Most Comprehensive Solar Tracker Portfolio
Built with field-proven quality and reliability, our flagship NX Horizon is the single-axis solar tracker of choice on close to 30 GW of projects around the world.
- Number-one global market share
- Rapid assembly and installation
- 120 degree rotation
- Ease of service
We designed a mechanically balanced system that has no overturning moment at the core of the NX Horizon tracker. This allows us to bring down the number of piers needed for one row of solar panels by up to one third. The energy required to move the array is reduced as well and can be easily handled by one self-powered motor unit for each row. As a result, the rows can be a lot longer, featuring up to 90 solar panels mounted in portrait orientation.
Maximize Yield with Bifacial + NX Horizon
NX Horizon’s large height-to-width aspect ratio maximizes module rear-side irradiance and helps maintain consistent irradiance along the underside of the modules. Eliminating direct shading and greatly reducing mismatch losses, NX Horizon’s structural design is bifacial-friendly, with the tracker incorporating bearing and pier gaps for the PV panels. Field tests have shown that mono-PERC bifacial PV modules can generate as much as 14% more energy when paired with NX Horizon.
Every Row Deserves Freedom of Expression
Once installed, our NX Horizon tracker is easy to service. Because the rows are not linked with a drive shaft, maintenance vehicles can drive through the arrays freely. Plus, module cleaning and vegetation management becomes effortless and fast. Each motor is powered by its own dedicated solar panel (with integrated battery backup), making external power cables obsolete. As soon as the wireless controller is plugged in, tracking begins. Each controller has an integrated inclinometer, and can measure each row individually, sending its data through a wireless mesh network. This way we can ensure that the fleet of trackers is performing as it should, any time, all the time.
Quick Set-up Thanks to Patented Design
Our NX Horizon tracker needs less steel than conventional trackers, allowing for quicker installation. You won’t need drive shafts or extra cabling to power the trackers, speeding the process up even further. NX Horizon is self-grounded, so you won’t have to pay costs and labor for installing grounding washers, braided straps, bare copper wire, and grounding rods. Furthermore, zero welding is required. Our patented fasteners make mounting the panels quick and easy. What’s more, these fasteners must be removed with special tools, providing theft deterrence. The fasteners are designed to hold their tensile strength indefinitely, so you won’t have to waste time and money checking and re-torquing these connections.
We at NEXTracker combine decades of experience with solar trackers, having installed many gigawatts of solar capacity. Our products have been vetted by independent engineering firms and selected by major solar developers and banks worldwide.
Our NX Horizon is designed to be simpler, smarter, and yield more with less to raise your profits. We take our work—and our customers—very seriously. Our commitment to quality ensures trackers of the highest efficiency and productivity and the best economic value. We at NEXTracker have a legacy of performance you can bank on.
Accepted as the gold standard of solar trackers by developers, owners, EPCs and operators, the NX Horizon has been the tracker of choice on more than 35 GW of solar power plants worldwide. The one-in-portrait (1P) smart solar tracker system delivers the lowest levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and has been deployed more than any other tracker. Combining best-in-class hardware and software, NX Horizon helps EPCs and asset owners maximize performance and minimize operational costs.
Superior BIfacial Performance up to 1.5%: NX Horizon produces significantly more bifacial energy than typical 1P trackers. For example, NX Horizon would deliver an 8.0% bifacial energy gain for a specific site vs. a 6.5% gain from other standard trackers. How? NX Horizon’s optimized design, which features PV modules elevated higher above the tubes and a tracker drive system not located under the modules themselves. This bifacial performance superiority has been empirically validated with PVsyst for sites at NREL, PVEL, and Nextracker’s Center of Solar Excellence.
Design Flexibility, Rapid Installation: NX Horizon’s reliable self-powered motor and control system, balanced mechanical design and independent row architecture provide project design flexibility while lowering operation and maintenance costs. With its self-aligning module rails and vibration-proof fasteners, NX Horizon can be easily and rapidly installed. The self-powered, decentralized architecture allows each row to be commissioned in advance of site power and is designed to withstand high winds and other adverse weather conditions.
Smart Controls, Optimized Performance: When paired with the TrueCapture smart control system, NX Horizon provides as much as 6% more energy production. Further unlocking the advantages of independent-row architecture and the data collected from thousands of sensors across its built-in wireless network, the software continuously optimizes the tracking algorithm of each row in response to site terrain and changing weather conditions.
Long-Term Durability: Quality and reliability are designed and tested into every NX Horizon component and system across our supply chain and manufacturing operations. Nextracker is the leader in dynamic wind analysis and safety stowing, delivering major benefits in uptime and long-term durability.
With close to 30 GW of our award-winning solar tracker commissioned on five continents, NEXTracker has earned the number one global market share position for four consecutive years. (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 Greentech Media). Tracking the sun was never more precise, more efficient, and more reliable. Powered by NEXTracker’s self-powered motor drive, each row of solar panels can now be built with significantly less steel and can be optimized for wider rotation angles. As a result, you will maximize your yield, pay less for operations and maintenance (O&M), and reduce the impact on the environment significantly.
