The P6 Pitch Drive is purpose-built to control the blade pitches on wind turbines. The drive series is offered in a variety of different power capacities and are safety certified by TÜV Rheinland to PLd according to EN ISO 13849-1. The drive offers specific features to easily integrate with ultracapacitors/batteries. The drive supports a number of different fieldbus options including EtherCAT and ProfiNet.
For advanced Pitch control the P6 drive can be configured with an internal PLC where functions like Pitch Control Algorithms, State Machines, and component health routines can be implemented. Customers have access to KEB's powerful pre-programmed libraries and the PLC program can be password-secured and encrypted.
Multiple drives can be implemented together for load sharing and redundancy purposes.
