Safe and reliable energy generation
The distribution of power generation to a large number of individual systems and the direct influence of extreme environmental factors place stringent requirements on the quality of the components used. Whether for renewable energy or conventional energy generation, our sensors and systems deliver convincing performance with excellent safety, robustness and reliability.
Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors were designed specifically for use in the hydraulic cylinders of wind power plants. The rotor blade angles are adapted to the wind speed using the pitch adjustment. In this way, they maximize power generation and guarantee maximum plant safety without contact.
With the help of our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors, you can flexibly adjust the guide and rotor blades of Kaplan turbines. A BTL profile controls the exact position of the guide blades depending on how much water is to flow into the turbine. In addition to this, our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors are integrated into the shaft to adjust the blades of the impeller to the various flow volumes.
For high efficiency, all troughs in the parabolic trough power plant have to be continuously adjusted to follow the sun's path and be focused exactly on the receiver tubes. Our BML magnetic encoders are located right on the rotating shaft and allow for precise position detection.
Continuous monitoring and stringent safety requirements are of key importance for quick-action shutoff control valves. The continuous monitoring is done with the help of redundant systems. Our compact and multiple redundant BTL 7 magnetostrictive linear position sensor provides two or three completely separate systems in the same housing. The integration of these independent measurement sections and electronics systems ensures maximum safety. You can configure our robust linear position sensor according to your needs.
Flaps ensure a reliable workflow in power plants and monitor fumes or exhaust gases. Robust hydraulic cylinders with our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors ensure that the flaps used are opened and closed reliably and on time. They support the smooth operation of power plants.
Diverters guide gas turbine fumes either to the bypass chimney or to the steam generator. Hydraulic systems with our integrated BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors gradually open and close these gas flow diverters. They operate dynamically, are compact and can also be used in a potentially explosive area.
