New developments in curing and disinfection are accelerating the growth of the UV market. At Nedap, we support UV businesses to develop new applications and further optimize processes for more sustainable disinfection and curing.
Nedap’s solutions are built upon three principles:
- Electronic lamp driver technology that excels in quality and energy-efficiency
- Smart technology that can quickly be adopted and deployed
- Accessible data, information, and insights
Energy-efficient lamp driver technology
An incredible 75% of the lifecycle costs of UV solutions are energy usage. Using energy-efficient UV lamp driver technology is a sustainable solution, reducing a user’s carbon footprint and cutting costs.
Smart technology that’s simple to adopt and deploy
Advanced electronic driver technology offers manufacturers more control over the power input versus UV output. This makes UV solutions more efficient at disinfection or curing when compared to traditional magnetic ballast technology.
The new generation of platforms, such as Nedap’s 4kW, use a PC lamp driver tool that makes it easy to configure, control and monitor lamp driver data. This provides developers with more effective tools to test the lamp driver and the overall UV solution, optimizing it during the design phase.
Accessible data and actionable insights
Water disinfection systems typically operate 24/7, with downtime dramatically impacting productivity and the people who rely on the resource. Current monitoring systems alert operators if a UV driver goes down but don't diagnose faults. Instead, special measurement tools are often required on-site to diagnose problems which can rapidly increase costs and increase downtime.
Nedap’s solution provides real-time monitoring, alerts, diagnosis, and fault finding. Service engineers receive instant access to performance information and insights without disrupting the operational processes controlled by Modbus.
Rapid troubleshooting is critical to ensure minimal downtime
Remote diagnostics can dramatically reduce travel costs and time. Our customers supply UV solutions worldwide, including some of its remotest places. Remote monitoring technology provides real-time insights whenever they need them, from anywhere in the world. The app is a critical first step toward accurate remote diagnostics.
To protect the security of systems, the Nedap UV lamp driver App ensures that data is only read from the connected lamp driver and no control and change of settings of the lamp driver is allowed. No connection to the Internet is needed to read data from the driver. The communication between the lamp driver and smart phone is local via a point-to-point wireless Bluetooth connection.
Every lamp driver has a unique 3D barcode. Scanning the barcode creates a connection between the smartphone and the lamp driver, displaying data and lamp graphs through the app.

Future of data
Nedap's next-generation lamp driver platform has updated integrated software. This gives operators more data and coontrol over settings and parameters compared to previous models. However, this can lead to more complexity. To make data relevant for users, it's essential to provide easy access and deliver relevant insights. In this way, data leads to a more sustainable and cleaner operation.
