Yaw control vane for wind turbines, compatible to digital inputs of turbine controllers, PLCs and other instruments.

Available in two different versions, provide reliably measure wind speed for turbine control in all climates.

Benefits include:

• Two-stage contamination protection extends sensor life.
• Fully sealed sensor body minimizes dust, dirt, and water ingress.
• Sealed cartridge bearing system prevents contamination from affecting the bearings.
• Shock-resistant bearing mounting prevents damage caused by rough handling.
• Rugged metal head prevents breakage due to accidental drops or icing.
• Recommended maintenance interval of 10 years eliminates unwanted trips to your turbines.

Hybrid XT Vane Push-Pull Output Active Low

Push-Pull output signal, compatible with NPN or PNP inputs.
Output amplitude equals supply voltage.
Compatibility: Wind turbines using one or two yaw-error signals.
Part number: 9381

Hybrid XT Vane 4-20mA Output

4-20 mA current loop output signal, sourced by the sensor.
Recommended load resistance 50Ω to 1000Ω (depending on power supply).
Transfer function: 4 to 20 mA corresponds to 0° to 360° in clockwise (CW) direction. For turbine control, orient so that 180° corresponds to on-the-wind
Compatibility: Wind turbines accepting 4-20mA current loop inputs.
