Under the umbrella brand X4edge fos4X bundles its portfolio of digital products to optimise the operation of wind turbines. Some of these products are based on the modular sensor platform fos4Blade.
The software solutions (or apps) based on the sensor platform fos4Blade close the gap between the fundamental measurement of blade properties and real customer value. With model-based analytics, machine-learning and AI techniques, fos4X converts sensor data from the edge into insights that the customer can access from anywhere. The heart of the fos4X sensor platform fos4Blade is the fiber-optic measurement technology, which is immune to lightning and electromagnetic interference. The sensor platform is modular and consists of a configurable set of strain and vibration sensors as well as a central measuring device.
