Yaw position sensors monitor wind turbines

Yaw position sensors monitor wind turbines

Specially engineered for wind turbine applications, MR200W series Yaw Position Transducers from Micronor Inc. monitor position, direction, speed, and cable twist while providing the necessary feedback to the yaw directional motor drive and brake control system. These products are based on the company’s proven modular sensor and control technology developed and refined over more than 40 years of industrial product experience.

An MR200W series position transducer can be multifunctional and integrate any combination of: geared limit switches, rotary encoder, resolver, or potentiometer. For increased accuracy and repeatability, the unit can be supplied with an external anti-backlash POM (polymer) pinion gear, which optimizes coupling to the wind turbine's large yaw bullgear.

Depending on performance requirements, functionality, and quantities, an integrated OEM position transducer solution can typically cost about $1,000 to $2,000. Engineering evaluation units can be delivered within four to eight weeks ARO and production units within four weeks thereafter.
