Simple maintenance and longer service life thanks to automatic monitoring
Disk brakes are used at various locations in wind turbines. Balluff's distance-reading analog inductive proximity sensors directly monitor disk wear at the braking surfaces. They also monitor brake pad wear by reporting the excursion of the metallic backing plate during braking operations. The data reported by these analog sensors can be monitored continuously and used for scheduling preventive maintenance at the appropriate time, neither too early nor too late.
- Absolute, continuous distance measurement to metallic targets
- Non-contact and wear-free for long service life
- Wide selection of analog measuring ranges
- Compact designs for easy integration
