Wind turbines are constantly in use everywhere. Encoders that are used for pitch and azimuth positioning or for speed measurement in wind turbines are consequently exposed to a harsh working environment. High expectations are placed on the availability of the signals, since downtimes are disproportionately more expensive and replacement far more time-consuming than for most sectors of automation engineering. Kübler encoders and counters measure up to these expectations, providing the required security.
