Solutions for the future
Together with customers and partners, we design solutions for the future using
trend-setting connection and automation technology. Wherever they will be
needed – in traffic infrastructure, E-Mobility, clean water, regenerative energies,
and intelligent power supply networks or energy-efficient machine building and
systems manufacturing.
The basis for our future-oriented solutions are industry-specific know-how and
innovative products. Because a solution is only truly inspiring if it meets the
expectations of our customers. This can be an innovative device with a specific
function – or an entire automation system.

Solutions for wind power
Harsh environmental conditions and long lifecycles – wind power plants place
high demands on electrical engineering. Phoenix Contact offers you innovative
and reliable solutions for the automation of your wind power plants. This allows
you to minimize downtimes and utilize your wind power plant as efficiently as
possible. As an automation specialist, we also support you with our safety
services in implementing the Machinery Directive.

Trend topic
The wind energy sector demands
products that can withstand the
extreme conditions. Another
important role is played by the
connection to the power grid and
maintenance that can be scheduled.
• Wide temperature range for use in
extreme heat and cold
• High degree of resistance to shock
and vibration
• Varying standards and guidelines
depending on region
• Conformance with Machinery
Directive through certification
Status monitoring
Maintenance activities for wind power plants
are extensive and thus expensive. With
monitoring systems, you will always see all
the relevant values and can plan according to
demand. For example, utilize the Hermes
award-winning LM-S lightning current
measuring system for online monitoring of
rotor blades.
Example solution: Rotor Blade Tension Monitoring
The Rotor Blade Tension Monitoring (RBTM) is part of an
overall wind energy segment solution from Phoenix Contact
with matching controllers, integrated load monitoring and
lightning protection up to supply management.
RBTM measures the load of the rotor blades and forwards
the resulting information to the monitoring system. This
allows early detection of damage and more efficient
scheduling of repair tasks.
