Onyx Insight has launched a hardware solution that predicts where and when pitch bearing failures occur in wind turbines. ecoPitch is based on its condition monitoring system, ecoCms.
ecoPitch uses sensor hardware that is permanently installed in the hub and, through data analytics, is able to detect early warning signs of impending pitch bearing failure. The system uses multiple data streams and signal processing techniques, enabling operators to understand when faults are going to occur in this part of the turbine.
