Yaw Position Sensor for Wind Turbines from Micronor

458

MR200W series yaw position transducers monitor yaw position, direction, speed, and cable twist while providing proper feedback to the wind turbine’s yaw directional motor drive and brake control systems. A unit can be multifunctional and integrate any combination of electromechanical limit switches, rotary encoder, resolver, or potentiometer. Anti-backlash POM (polymer) pinion gear optimizes coupling to the turbine’s large yaw bull gear for long term reliability, accuracy, and repeatability.

Specially engineered for wind turbine applications, MR200W series yaw position transducers 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 Micronor’s proven modular sensor and control technology developed and refined over 40-plus years of industrial product experience. An MR200W series position transducer can be multifunctional and integrate any combination of geared limit switches, rotary encoders, resolvers, or potentiometers. For increased accuracy and repeatability the unit can be supplied with an external anti-backlash POM (polymer) pinion gear that optimizes coupling to the wind turbine’s large yaw bull gear.
