On 10 September it will be time once again for the Husum Wind. For four days Husum will be the meeting place for the wind power industry. With the guiding principle "We think wind a step further", the leading national trade show for wind power faces up to the current challenges in the industry: these include the question of the future of wind power when the subsidy under the Renewable Energy Sources Act for the first wind turbines comes to an end in 2020. Moreover, the focus will be on topics such as the intelligent distribution and storage of wind power as well as the digitalisation and use of Big Data. As a supplier of controllers for all the electrical systems of a wind turbine, Beckhoff will present its universal solution for measurement technology and condition monitoring at the Husum Wind. With the high-performance measurement modules, EtherCAT as the measurement technology fieldbus and the TwinCAT software, Beckhoff covers the complete measurement technology chain and integrates measurement technology directly into the PC-based controller. Maximum transparency is achieved through the recording and analysis of the operating and diagnostic data in the local database or the cloud. Further products await you at the Beckhoff trade show booth, such as the decentralised AMP8000 servo drive for the adjustment of blade angle and nacelle, or the integration of supercaps into our controllers.
