Components

Orbital offers a wide range of electronic wind turbine components as well as OrbiSCADA to monitor and control the wind turbine. The TMC control system works with different wind turbine models by various manufacturers. The grid feed inverter is designed for control of permanent magnet and induction generators and the dump load controller is designed for bypassing overproduction and peaks from wind turbine generators. Orbitals anemometer and wind vane are high-quality products for measuring wind speed and direction. Orbital also offers are a range of Profibus components.

SCADA


With a subscription to OrbiSCADA you can access and control your wind turbine from any computer or smartphone


OrbiSCADA

OrbiSCADA empowers the user to remotely monitor, control and reconfigure any of their wind turbines over a secure encrypted connection.

Inverters and dump load controllers


Inverters control the generator and power to the grid so it complies with any requirements. The dump load secures that overproduction is bypassed


Grid feed inverter

A highly efficient power inverter designed for control of permanent magnet (PM) and induction generators. Power range 10-20 kW.

Dump load controller

A highly efficient 3-phase to DC converter specially designed for bypassing overproduction and peaks.

Sensors


You can measure wind speed, direction and temperatures with Orbitals sensors


Anemometer

Wind speed measurements. It is created in high quality brass and calibrated by Force Technology.

Wind vane

For yaw regulation of wind turbines. It is created in high quality brass and does not need calibration.

OrbiVib 2

OrbiVib 2 is designed for vibration measurements in the frequency range 0–100 Hz.
