    GfM Gesellschaft für Maschinendiagnose mbH, Germany: High-end vibration analysis in wind turbines

    The Peakanalyzer by GfM, which is universally applicable for fully automatic vibration diagnostics, has been tried and tested for use in wind turbines. The raw data is processed by an Embedded PC with integrated EL3632 EtherCAT Terminals for Condition Monitoring (IEPE).

  • Fraunhofer IWES, Germany: PC- and EtherCAT-based control technology in a feature-filled test bench system for wind turbines

    Fraunhofer IWES, Germany: PC- and EtherCAT-based control technology in a feature-filled test bench system for wind turbines

    The Dynamic Nacelle Testing Laboratory (DyNaLab) is the first test environment for complete wind turbine nacelles ever built in Germany. PC-based control from Beckhoff is used to control the complex system, and a high-speed EtherCAT communication ensures a consistent real-time solution as well as optimum consideration of the distributed subsystems from a control perspective.
