AV MONITOR 4000 (AVM 4000) is an intelligent platform for online condition monitoring, failure protection and vibration-based diagnostics of machinery.
Achieving high turbine uptime while keeping maintenance costs low is fundamental to running a profitable wind energy business. The application of a vibration-based condition monitoring and diagnostic system for turbines is the key element to achieving this goal.
The system provides precise information regarding the technical condition of drive train elements, such as bearings, shafts, gearboxes and generators, based on the advanced analysis of the vibration signals they emit. Mechanical failures account for up to 50% of total wind turbine downtime, while a gearbox failure and its replacement may even stop a turbine for 6 months, causing losses of a million euros or more.
