LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / October 6, 2016 / Nextek Power Systems' new Power hub Driver (PhD) made BuildingGreen's Top 10 list today of the best green products for 2016. The announcement was made at GreenBuild 2016, the world's largest conference and expo dedicated to green building, held this year at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Nextek's CTO Ben Hartman and Director of Design Resources, Doug Hamborsky were at the event, where they were literally not shocked by Nextek making the Top 10 list, and can't be shocked by the low voltage dc Power hub Driver - which is the result of careful design.
"This latest iteration of our Direct Coupling® power distribution and control platform has generated great interest from our customers across the globe, with early inquiries from Japan, India, the Middle East, and of course across the US," Hartman said.
A pioneer and leader in dc microgrids design and implementation, Nextek's latest product is fully solid state, and can act as a centralized, dimmable LED driver for lighting and control applications, has a modulating fan controller, and can provide controllable power to radiant floor heat. The new name for the company's flagship product - the PhD - plays on the new power hub's ability to communicate in three wireless protocol languages: BACnet IP, ZigBee®, and IPv6 in addition to wired BACnet.
"Our commitment to be the power and control platform of choice for the Internet of Things strategy across many sectors, shines brightly in this new product," says Paul Savage, Nextek's CEO. "We can take grid power or solar PV power, or a changing blend of the two at the highest efficiency to drive most electronic devices in a building. And, thanks to our innovations in design and manufacturing techniques, our new product is now 25% lower in price than last year."
The Nextek PhD is a huge opportunity for LED fixture manufacturers to get cost out of their products by designing out the old-style driver, replacing it with a centralized and controllable power source. This also extends the warranty offered to customers to a full 10 years for the PhD.
