Smart Pitch Solutions

What private end user know as a Standard in many Areas is now possible for Windernergy as well – customizing a product with individually selectable components to your own requirements. The COMBIVERT P6 of KEB Automation offers customers exactly this option.

Customers can choose from a wide range of options to adapt each pitch system for different needs. In addition to a large number of bus systems (including CAN, EtherCAT, Profinet and Profibus) the operating voltage of the pitch brake, heating systems, braking resistor, fan direction and encoder (for example, resolver, TTL and SSI) can also be selected. Besides that the system works both with asynchronous, synchronous, and DC motors.

The high integration of inverter, charger for energy storage and a fully-fledged PLC in a very compact format is unique in the market. This concept makes the P6 versatile and flexible.
Programming your own functions is possible with the KEB software tool COMBIVIS studio 6, so that the pitch system fits even better to the specific requirements of the individual wind turbine. The customers can apply their knowhow tailor-made and save their programming password-protected. At the same time, the user can also access existing function blocks from the KEB Pitch libraries, such as "Ultracap Monitoring" or "Data Logger". Own functions can be programmed by the user with the languages of IEC 61131.
Like the P6 system, the KEB pitch motors are part of the individual solutions. The options range from the matching flange to adjustable pitch brakes and encoder selection. As an active part of the safety concept, the P6 is also certified by TÜV Rheinland in accordance with EN ISO 13849-1 with PL d.
