technologies such as VAWT and for wind turbines above 6 MW in size and IPC blade bearing systems. The next main bearing generation (main bearing unit, MBU) will be presented at WindEnergy for the first time. This fully-integrated unit stands out due to its even more compact and light design. eolotec wants to use this to further increase the economic efficiency of the MBU, which is already established on the market. A special sensor system enables micrometre precise adjustment and monitoring preloading of the tapered roller bearings being used. Wind Edition Hall B5, Booth 510 eolotec presents its new main bearing generation.

The company offers scalable components and systems for monitoring all relevant safety functions of wind turbines. Its range of products includes the PNOZ s30 speed monitor for monitoring standstill, speed, rotation direction and shaft breakage for the highest safety requirements (up to Performance Level PL e). It also encompasses the configurable PNOZmulti control systems as well as the PSS 4000 automation system with various controller classes, software tools and the SafetyNET p real time Ethernet. As an open system, the PSS 4000 can easily be integrated in existing architectures, and can also be maintained and monitored remotely. In addition, Pilz will be showing which steps are necessary for a successful and efficient CE conformity process as well as the support services offered by the company for this purpose. The range covers risk assessment, the development of a safety concept for wind turbines as well as the validation of safety solutions. Hall A1, Booth 518 Beckhoff Automation GmbH will present its integrated control solution for the wind industry. PC-based Control makes it possible to integrate operational management, pitch control, inverter control, condition
