HBM – a leader in the field of test and measurement – will once again be exhibiting its latest range of revolutionarily measurement systems, at this year’s Offshore Wind Energy 2017 exhibition, which takes place on the 6-8th June at London ExCeL.

HBM is able to design, manufacture, install and support robust measurement systems for offshore wind turbines. For validation purposes and long-term condition monitoring, HBM uses either resistive or fibre-optical strain gauge arrays, together with other sensors and a comprehensive DAQ package for SCADA interface or stand-alone operation.

To demonstrate HBM’s capabilities in the structural health monitoring market, guests are invited to visit stand N-A14 where HBM will be showcasing its leading-edge wind turbine model, which is fitted with a QuantumX cX22W data recorder for high performance testing or monitoring and Catman software to measure, visualise and analyse saved data.

The QuantumX CX22B-W Data Recorder seamlessly integrates with the universal QuantumX series. Regardless of whether mechanical, electrical or thermal measurement qualities or signals provided by the vehicle bus, camera, wheel force sensors or GPS are acquired, CX22B-W conveniently collects, analyses and stores the acquired data in the device, without a PC connection and with total sample rates up to 5 MS/s. Used with Catman software, easy analysis can be achieved. Catman simplifies the parameterisation, acquisition and visualisation of measurement data.

Guests will also have the opportunity to take a closer look at the range of HBM sensors, transducers and data acquisition systems applicable for condition monitoring and renewable energy industries.

HBM measurement technology helps to identify mechanical stress on wind turbine components at an early stage, during research and development testing and during operation minimising downtime, extending life cycle and improving safety.

Co-organised by Wind Europe and Renewable UK, Offshore Wind Energy 2017 – the world’s largest offshore wind energy gathering – enables key players in the offshore wind energy sector the opportunity to exchange ideas, establish partnerships and further advance the tremendous gains made by this industry in recent years.
