HEATING COMPARISON

WHY IS NEXGEN LOW VOLTAGE

Nexgen is a low voltage heating solution. Here’s why

Voltage Squared divided by resistance equals power which is measured in Watts. Most Carbon Film or Heating Cables are around 60 to 80 ohms resistance across a 60 cm sheet. Nexgen is on average just between 4 and 12 ohms ! Resistance is exactly as it sounds to stop or resist flow from one thing to another. In this instance we are using heat.

NOW YOU UNDERSTAND WHY OTHER FAR INFRARED PRODUCTS , INCLUDING PANELS , HAVE TO HAVE A 240 VOLT SUPPLY

Also Nexgen covers 95% of the area with its patented graphite mix. In comparison FAR Infrared  and Wire Mats cover 2% to 4% and Carbon Film around 60% coverage. A Infra Red Panel is also on average 2%.
Because of this Nexgen saves between 15% to 24% in running costs AND gives a constant consistent temperature.
