Advanced Wind Turbine Controller AWC 500
The AWC 500 Advanced Wind turbine Controller ( PLC-based PAC ) is the latest addition to our AWC controller series. AWC 500 offers an unprecedented and unrivalled level of robustness to your wind turbine control systems.
Not only on mechanical and electrical parameters does the AWC 500 constitute the most robust solution in the industry. The controller is suitable for cold climate or extended temperature operation. With its embedded real-time Linux* operational system and CODESYS CONTROL PLC run-time, the AWC 500 also offers a maximum of stability in terms of execution of the application software.
