Blade angle monitoring

The redundant blade angle monitoring function makes it possible to check whether the rotor blades actually turn when the pitch motor is rotating. The AFS/AFM60 absolute encoder does this by measuring the absolute position and speed of the rotor blades.

  • Following product families can be used
    • High-resolution absolute encoder with up to 30 bits (AFM60) or 18 bits (AFS60)
    • Face mount flange, servo flange, blind hollow shaft or through hollow shaft
    • SSI, SSI + incremental or SSI + sin/cos interface
    • Resolution, offset, etc. can be programmed (depending on the type)
    • Connectivity: M12 or M23 male connector or cable connection
    • Enclosure rating: IP67 (housing), IP65 (shaft)
    • Operating temperature: –40 °C ... +100 °C (depending on the type)
