HBM test products and systems

cover almost all measurements...

  • Strain for fatigue testing and mechanical stress identification
  • Torque in gear units to determine the generator's efficiency
  • Compressive force to measure the total mass of the structure
  • Displacement, acceleration, tilt...

... of different values in most components,

  • Tower, foundation, rotor blades, gear units, drive train (inverters) and others
  • Mechanical loads and measurable variables 
  • During manufacturing, transportation, operation and service life   

required in wind turbine monitoring

  • Components testing
  • Load assessment
  • Structural design & analysis 
  • Individual pitch control
