During the life time of a wind turbine, bolts suffer from dynamic forces which can result in cracks, damages and breakages. For a safe and reliable operation of the wind turbine, every single bolt must be intact. The bolt monitoring systems from Weidmüller provide a necessary information about the condition of each bolt at the rotor blade or tower segment connection.
By integrating a Weidmüller condition monitoring solution, you know the status of your bolted joints on the tower segments, the foundation or the blade bearing.
Depending on the sensor type, the Weidmüller systems enable the detection of bolt fractures, the detection of nut cracks or the detection of unwanted bolt looseness
The monitoring system can be integrated into the failure loop of the wind turbine to ensure a safe shutdown of the wind turbine in case of a damage event.
Condition monitoring plays an important role in every industry. Especially in the wind sector, the continuous monitoring and analyses of data is a crucial success factor. Specific installation concepts and the optimal use of systems within the wind plants require a reliable and futureproof solutions.
