Orient nacelles in the wind

Reliable and cost-effective solution for higher wind power plant efficiency

The solution

To achieve the maximum efficiency of the wind power plant, the nacelles must be oriented in the wind. Our BES inductive sensors detect the position directly at the gear ring of the azimuth adjustment and make it possible to reliably move the nacelle to the optimum position.

Balluff's robust sensors are ideally suited for inexpensively and redundantly supplementing standard solutions with a rotary encoder. In contrast to rotary encoders, our sensors do not need to be attached with a special mechanism.

The features

  • Particularly sturdy, shock- and vibration-resistant
  • Wear and maintenance-free thanks to contact-free working
  • Suitable for wide temperature and humidity fluctuations
  • Stainless steel housing
