Condition monitoring for screw connections

Detect anomalies and deviations in your screw connections. Our condition monitoring systems provide the relevant information early and reliable.

Condition monitoring for screw connections

Screw connections are one of the most stressed parts of a wind turbine

During the life time of a wind turbine, screw connections suffer from dynamic forces which can result in cracks, damages and breakages. For a safe and reliable operation of the wind turbine, every single screw must be intact. The screw monitoring systems from Weidmüller provide a necessary information about the condition of each screw at the rotor blade or tower segment connection.

Your benefits with our screw monitoring solution

Monitoring of screw connections

Monitoring of screw connections

By integrating a Weidmüller condition monitoring solution, you know the status of your screw connections on the tower segments, the foundation or the blade bearing.

Detection of anomalies and damages

Detection of anomalies and damages

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

Prevention of further damages

Prevention of further damages

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.

Our offering

Evaluation Unit

The evaluation unit collects the sensor data and processes it using an integrated controller. It forms the interface to the main controller. The data can optionally be provided via remote access in the SCADA.

 Evaluation Unit
