In its latest brochure, measurement technology specialist Micro-Epsilon is presenting new possibilities for displacement, profile and temperature measurement of wind turbine systems. The brochure provides details on the specific benefits associated with the use of sensors in specific applications and describes the sensor required for this. For example, highlighted are the condition monitoring possibilities that arise from the use of IR temperature sensors. Amongst other things, the thermoMETER CT sensors are used for the temperature measurement of the generator windings or for the rotor gearbox. Noticeable, abnormal temperature developments indicate a technical problem, which can then be rectified before any major repairs are required. Minimising shutdown times is therefore possible. In addition to temperature measurement, examples of displacement and profile measurement for quality assurance purposes during the manufacture of turbine components are also provided.
