State-of-the-art technology for the wind power industry
Today's wind turbines require a high-performance automation solution and place high demands on safety and system availability, particularly in the area of offshore turbines. Tough operating conditions are also a real challenge for the components. "B&R offers the perfect technology and automation solutions for these special demands," explains Mikel Imaz, manager of the B&R office in Spain's Basque region.
Fast, fanless and flexible
By taking advantage of state-of-the-art processors – up to and including Intel® Core™ i7 technology – the new Panel PC 900 with multi-touch functionality offers the absolute highest level of total computing power. Combining brand new display sizes with multi-touch operation, B&R's new flagship system is more versatile than ever, even offering full compatibility with the previous device generation.
Data transmission, configuration and diagnostics of field devices
B&R now includes an analog HART input module and a HART output module in their successful series of X20 communication modules. These new modules are equipped with two inputs and outputs and use real-time Ethernet POWERLINK to transfer HART data supplied by sensors and actuators directly to the controller.
