Nedap introduces new UV lamp driver: the 4/8 kW platform
Relevant data insights are crucial to get the most out of UV systems and for smooth and sustainable operation. Especially in offshore operations such as ballast water treatment for commercial vessels, data logging is important as data may be requested for port state control and USCG review. Data is also important to the owners as they can identify valuable trends regarding the performance of the BWTS.

Intelligent UV lamp driver platform creates relevant insights
With Nedap's integrated software and Modbus / Bluetooth interface, owners get real time diagnostic data of individual drivers. These valuable insights about the functioning of the systems allow for predictive maintenance in which downtime is minimized. Service personnel can use the UV Monitor app to see the equipment's status and view its performance.
The ambition of Nedap is to create technology that has a positive impact in people's professional lives. The 4/8 kW lamp driver platform empower OEM's to easily adopt and deploy intelligent UV treatment- and disinfection solutions. The driver platform is compatible with most major medium pressure UV lamps, has pre-programmed power settings and can easily be configurated via the PC lamp driver tool and integrated software.
Robust and compact design
The robust and compact design also make the 4/8 kW driver patform very suitable for marine applications. The technology onboard ships must operate at high efficiency in order to load the ship's electronic grid as carefully as possible. Being aware of harmonic distortion - also known as interference - these kinds of systems is important. The combination of high powwer factor (>0,98), low Total Harmonic Distortion (<5%) and high efficiency (96,5%) distinguishes Nedap's lamp driver technology.
