21st Century technology

Published:  11 June, 2015

HBM, an expert in the field of test and measurement, exhibited 21st Century measurement technology, capable of working in extreme environments, both above and below the water line at Global Offshore Wind exhibition.

Sharing its stand with HBM FiberSensing, HBM featured the WindMETER system at the show, which is a complete fibre-optic monitoring solution designed by FiberSensing, to be installed in wind generator blades.

The company says due to the increased capacity of generators and, consequently, of larger blade sizes, wind blade monitoring has now become essential. Moreover, the increasing number of off-shore facilities, plus the need to extend the structures working life has now created a need for reliable real time monitoring solutions.

The WindMETER system consists of an interrogator and a set of passive Fibre Bragg Grating strain and temperature sensors.
