Moog has launched its latest AC Moog Wind Turbine Pitch System. Moog set four goals when developing the new pitch systems and products: 1) Improve turbine reliability 2) Reduce the overall cost to the turbine operator of producing energy 3) Meet global safety certification requirements and 4) Create modular designs which are easy to integrate into the customer’s turbines.

Moog’s engineers designed a more compact, modular AC architecture and achieved a significant reduction in complexity. This reduced the overall number of separate components in the system to increase its reliability. In 2012, the Moog Pitch Servo Drives (Pitchmaster II and Pitchmaster II+ models) obtained TÜV certification for compliance with the certification guideline GL2010 and the international standard ISO 13849-1. Some enhancements to the existing pitch system platform are the additions of the proven Moog Ruggedized Motion Controller and Remote Terminal Software to the wind energy portfolio. The IP67 class motion controller has an extended temperature range from -40 °C up to 70 °C (-40 °F up to 158 °F). It is designed for extreme environmental conditions.
