Enhanced efficiency and safety by air gap monitoring

The enormous load impacts on the blades are directly transmitted to the hub and consequently to the main bearing. In gearless plants, asymmetric strain may reduce the air gap between rotating shaft and nacelle. AlphaProx inductive sensors monitor the air gap tolerances at the respective critical points and allow for balancing the load.

  • Applications
    • Inductive sensors AlphaProx with extended temperature range (series IWRR)

      • The short response time of < 2 ms enables quick reactions to fluctuations in strain
      • Easy and quick installation thanks to the high measuring distance up to 7 mm
      • Smart product design in a stainless steel housing (V4A)
      • Corrosion-resistant according to C5M, the highest corrosiveness category
