Maintenance-free tower lighting in wind turbine generators

Press release   •   Jul 04, 2016 11:54 BST

In order to ensure the safety of employees in wind turbine generators, the towers must be illuminated safely. To this end, Phoenix Contact offers a tower lighting system using maintenance-free LED lights. The LED lights are supplied centrally by an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) installed in the tower base. Even before climbing the tower, the service technician can find out the state of the UPS and the batteries. Easily installed using the QPD quick connect fittings and pre-assembled cabling.

The powerful LED modules conform to the relevant standard EN 50308. They provide good luminous intensity even at low temperatures. Thanks to a service life of 50,000 hours, the lights do not generally have to be replaced. Due to the low current consumption of the LED technology, the lights also function as emergency lighting. In the event of power failure, the lights continue to be supplied via a central battery. The luminosity is then maintained at 50%. There is therefore enough light still available in the wind turbine generator for the service technician to safely descend.

Phoenix Contact, founded over 80 years ago, is a leading manufacturer of electric connection and industrial automation technology. 14000 employees, 50 own sales companies and 30 sales partners worldwide ensure customer proximity.

Our work is dedicated to the creation of progress with inspiring, innovative solutions and to a trusting partnership towards our customers and partners with common benefits.
