Solar trackers & Wind turbines
Long life robust position sensors are required for renewable energy technology thus making Piher´s non contacting position sensors ideal for these applications.
With truly non-contacting sensing, low power consumption and wireless option, these sensors provide an all-in-one integrated and maintenance free solution for remote locations and harsh environments.
Piher´s contactless sensors are able to withstand extreme environments while providing accurate position/angle feedback with virtually unlimited life.
Our PSC-360 and PST-360 series adapt themselves to any solar tracker by combining a through-shaft design with 360º absolute position feedback.
In wind turbines Piher´s rotary displacement magnetic sensors can feedback the angle of the blades and the position of the head so as to always face the wind.
