Innovative turn-key solutions

Equip your systems in the tower with reliable and durable solutions from Phoenix Contact.

Back to Wind turbine generators


  • Solutions for tower lighting

    Phoenix Contact offers a complete system for tower lighting of wind turbine generators, from the uninterruptible power supply to LED lights.

In addition to the converter and all the data, signal, and power cabling, the tower of the WTG also houses the complete infrastructure for WTG servicing, such as lighting or the service elevator. These systems, which operate semi-autonomously from the main control system, still have to be monitored and designed in compliance with local safety standards.

Whether it is inverter cabling, bottom-box electronics, lighting or monitoring systems – at Phoenix Contact you can find innovative turn-key solutions for the WTG tower.

Your advantages

  • Reduce servicing with maintenance-free lighting solutions
  • Functional safety with safety solutions for autonomous or networked systems
  • Save time with clever cabling solutions


Cabling in the wind turbine generator tower  

Solutions for reliable cabling in the tower

We offer numerous solutions for a permanently reliable cabling concept for the WTG tower: for signal, data, and power transmission.

Through the use of customer-specific assembled cables, installation times are reduced further since the cables and connectors can be tailored to the specific requirements.


Lighting in the wind turbine generator tower  

Lighting solutions - low-maintenance and easy to install

Lighting solutions from Phoenix Contact impress with their maintenance-free operation. Thanks to the use of special plug technology, the tower lighting can be wired more quickly and above all more easily, thereby eliminating the need for the services of an electrical engineer.

The integrated UPS ensures that adequate lighting is provided in an emergency. Emergency lights are not required, since the economical LEDs can be supplied without any problems via this battery.

Service elevator

Safety solutions for reliable shutdown in the event of an emergency

In order to ensure the safety of personnel in the service elevators, we offer stand-alone systems with functional safety for reliable shutdown in the event of an emergency.

They are based on modular small-scale controllers which perform the monitoring functions. Communication with the plant control system is established by Radioline wireless modules.

Technology for autonomous and networked subsystems

Robust technology is also required in the WTG tower. Subsystems such as the service elevator, which operate semi-autonomously, can be equipped with reliable and durable solutions from Phoenix Contact.

Modular control technology and an extensive portfolio of I/O modules also allow the systems to be flexibly extended later, for example, with energy data acquisition for feed-in. When it comes to lighting, time-saving and above all simple wiring is essential.
