Belden Failsafe Wireless Data Transmission for Wind Parks
When a leading wind turbine manufacturer was looking to establish a failsafe data transmission connection between 5 existing onshore turbines in a coastal region in northern Europe, Belden designed and delivered a robust, reliable and cost-effective wireless solution that guarantees maximum uptime of the park communication.
The Belden wireless solution did not require mechanical changes at the turbines and provided a significant cost reduction. The failsafe transmission of data between the towers is ensured, without a need to retrofit cabling or drilling, avoiding possible subsequent failures in cable transmissions. The tried and tested Hirschmann™ industrial devices are waterproof for highly reliable and stable communication, and the system offers greater safety for personnel as technicians do not have to enter into the turbine as would be necessary for a cabled network.
Our wireless solution delivers a long-term return on investment – and its main benefits include cost efficiency thanks to the elimination of cables, reduced risk of failure, improved safety, maximum reliability and uptime of the wind park, and 24/7 security against unauthorized entrance or breakdown of the communication network.
