Different structural parts of a wind turbine oscillate, move or vibrate. The tower, blades, nacelle, main bearing and gearbox are some of the main components which are important to monitor. If these components, oscillate, vibrate too much or if they break loose and create large shocks it can endanger the wind turbine or cause severe damage. Therefore, monitoring these components is an important part of the wind turbine safety chain. The PCH 1026 vibration monitor has been specially developed to fulfill this task and it is certified by Germanischer Lloyd according to Guide Lines 2010 chapter 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 and rated according to the functional safety standard ISO 13849-1 as a PL= d rated component.
