Online condition monitoring – increased profitability due to permanent monitoring

Permanent monitoring of rolling bearings operating under hard conditions in wind turbines is a fundamental precondition for better profitability.

For INA and FAG, this task is taken up by the experts of the autonomous service company FAG Industrial Services GmbH (F’IS).

FAG WiPro, an online condition monitoring system specially developed for requirements in wind turbines, enables maintenance operation costs to be reduced and the availability of wind turbines to be increased.

The FAG WiPro system has been officially recognized by the Allianz Versicherungs AG insurance company. The system and the F’IS monitoring point are also certified by the German Lloyd.


Offline single measurements – the cost-effective alternative

As an introduction to system monitoring, F’IS also offers single measurements of vibration data with mobile diagnostic devices.

This method, for example by measuring critical machine parts every six months with subsequent analysis and diagnosis, is still a cost-effective alternative for smaller turbines despite the known limitations.

F’IS also offers the following techniques:

  • Endoscopy
  • Thermography
  • Speed measurements (also with permanent speed measuring points)
