Efficient ice detector for icy conditions
LID-3300IP Type 2 Ice Detector is designed for detecting icing conditions on the rotor blades. Ice reduces the productive capacity of wind turbines considerably and burdens their construction, which leads to an increased need for expensive and time-consuming maintenance.
Most wind turbines are located in the coastal regions with harsh weather conditions including icy winds, heavy frost and rapid temperature changes, so the need for efficient ice detection is evident. Equipping wind turbines with ice detectors can significantly reduce security risks and strain caused by ice formation.
Suitable for all turbines
The ultrasound-based LID-3300IP Type 2 Ice Detector offers many considerable advantages. The equipment is compact and easy to install. It is ready to use without calibration and fits all turbines from different manufacturers, including older models.
The LID-3300IP Type 2 is easy to connect to wind turbine control systems using a relay, current data, serial or TCP/IP interface. Congealment status, alarms and parameters can be monitored and adjusted through an inbuilt www user interface.
LID-3300IP Type 2 Ice Detector system fulfils the requirements of PLd according to ISO 13849-1. The safety function is validated through relay outputs.
Labkotec’s LID-3300IP Type 2 Ice Detector improves turbine production reliability and radically reduces risks caused by ice formation in icy conditions. LID, tested and approved by DNV GL, TÜV Rheinland, and the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT), is the leader in the market. Thousands of units have been supplied to the biggest turbine manufacturers in Europe and in Finland they are used, for example, by Finavia to ensure aviation safety.
