Orbital is now launching an OrbiSCADA gateway unit for GAIA wind turbines. The solution will consist of a hardware kit including a modem and SIM card.
The gateway unit has been developed by the R&D department in Orbital. The engineering team has programmed the unit to read and forward data from GAIA wind turbines to OrbiSCADA. After the installation in the wind turbine control cabinet, the unit connects to the original wind turbine controller and sends data to OrbiSCADA every minute.
Besides live data, OrbiSCADA makes sure to store all information so that it is possible to go back and analyze the wind turbine’s history at various measuring points and parameters. It is also possible to remotely control the wind turbine through OrbiSCADA with start, stop and reset commands.
