Solutions for condition monitoring

Permanent monitoring and analysis of wind turbine generators is essential. Condition monitoring focuses on parts subject to particular stress, such as the drive train and the generator. With increasing turbine sizes, monitoring the rotor blades is also becoming increasingly important. Condition monitoring systems allow wind turbine generators to be operated much more efficiently, as downtimes for maintenance and repair are reduced to a minimum.

Modular rotor blade monitoring Our solution for optimized system operation

Rotor blades are exposed to high loads. They have a high potential for wear and damage. Based on the requirements, Phoenix Contact provides a tailored combination of our solutions for rotor blade monitoring. The modular design of our Blade Intelligence solution features a combination of the individual systems.

System automation

Phoenix Contact offers intelligent solutions that you can use to efficiently automate sub-applications, complete WTGs, and even a wind farm. Phoenix Contact control and software solutions allow you to stay competitive and respond flexibly to dynamically changing circumstances.

Efficient system development Model-based system development

Model your wind turbine generator in Matlab Simulink and perform diagnostics on your models, including debugging, without a Matlab license on our modular software platform.

This software platform speeds up your engineering process, thanks to the reusability of user-specific automation modules and object-oriented programming. dashboard on a screen in front of an offshore wind farm

All data at a glance Retrieve, monitor, and track data at any time

The dashboards in the Time Series Data Service of the IIoT platform from Phoenix Contact are a comprehensive, cloud-based solution for monitoring wind turbine generators. You can check the condition of your wind turbine generators online at any time. You can directly take the necessary measures to prevent damage.


Thanks to PLCnext Technology, our open control platform, you can easily integrate applications developed in high-level languages into your overall system. Individual modules can even be updated or maintained during operation. You determine the core on which the program sequences are run, and which task they are synchronized with.

PLCnext Technology

PLCnext Technology is the basis of the new, open control platform from Phoenix Contact. It offers a comprehensive, coordinated portfolio for tunnel technology, thus enabling quick and reliable engineering. Easy adaptation to the individual requirements of operators are also possible with it, thanks to the integration of open source software, apps, and future technologies.

You can implement new IoT-based business models through direct connection to cloud-based services and databases.


Phoenix Contact provides you with innovative automation and connection technology to equip your wind turbine generator or your entire wind farm. Many products were specifically developed for the wind power industry and stand out with their particularly robust design and clever functions.
