Angle sensors report excessive tower deflection during high wind conditions
Strong gusts of wind and sustained high winds during storms can exert strong forces on the tower of a wind turbine. Balluff's inclination sensors offer non-contact angle measurement to indicate the deflection from vertical and the corresponding amount of stress on the tower structure.
- Detects the change in angle with respect to the horizontal
- High accuracy over a measurement range up to 360° (one rotation)
- Compact, robust metal housing enables simple installation
- Absolute measuring signal: correct position reported upon power up
