Bosch Rexroth has introduced ACoS, the Advanced Condition Monitoring, which combines condition monitoring for all components in the power train of a wind turbine and intelligently networking measurement data from different sensors.
A standardised operating interface for all sub-systems speeds up the analysis process and reduces the need for training. Bosch Rexroth AG has now joined forces with technology company DMT GmbH & Co. KG to develop the holistic ACoS condition monitoring system. The system combines monitoring for all relevant function groups by means of a standardized and continuous connection to a control desk, thereby reducing the need for hardware. By synchronizing the data measurement process, the detection sensitivity and data quality are also increased. In addition to holistic turbine monitoring, ACoS also includes GL-certified ice detection on the rotor blades.
