Sensor automatic

1. Sensor automatic
The measurements for vibrations in wind energy turbines are carried out in three axes. The direction of the axes plays an important role. The coordinate system refers to the turbine and is constant. The triaxial sensor has its own coordinate system, which - depending on the sensor positioning - does not always correspond to the turbine's coordinate system.
If you activate the automatic assignment of axes, VM-WIND correctly assigns the sensor axes to the turbine's coordinate system. It also shows the correct sensor positioning in graphical drawings. If you follow these graphical instructions you avoid positioning errors.

Sensor selection

2. Sensor selection
To work correctly, the sensor automatic requires assigned sensors. In the drop-down list, you can choose among all sensors from the sensor management.
