WindSafe - Online Condition Monitoring System for Wind Turbines
WindSafe® is DMT’s machine diagnostic system specially designed for use in wind power plants. The system uses the modern components of our new XSafe online-technology for the core functions. The hardware and software is specially adapted to the requirements of wind power plants. The hardware boasts an operating temperature range of -40°C to +65°C, qualifying the system for use in rugged environments.
WindSafe makes for economical and efficient online monitoring in wind parks. Impending damage to any part of the entire drive train will be detected early on, helping avoid unplanned downtimes and costly subsequent damage. We can offer monitoring and service concepts tailored exactly to the maintenance plan for your wind park. With modern, secure and reliable web technologies and communication strategies, system data is available to the operator and to service personnel at all times.
In 2003 WindSafe was the first online condition monitoring system to achieve certification in accordance with Allianz Center for Technology (AZT) guidelines. The system is recognised by all major German insurance underwriters.
