Wind Turbine Rotor Positioning

  • Energy for the Olympics: 43 wind turbines are using inductive uprox+ sensors

  • 2 uprox+ sensors record a special cam to reliably determine the current position of the blade angle

  • Recording the rotor speed involves two uprox+ sensors working together with a toothed washer

With an innovative generator design, the Saarland-based VENS YS Energy AG made it all the way to Beijing for the Summer Olympic Games. More than 40 VENS YS wind turbines - built by the Chinese licensing partner Goldwind - provided environmentally friendly electricity for the event. To achieve this, Uprox+ sensors from Turck guaranteed a consistently optimal rotor position.
