At this year’s Hanover Fair Belden will showcase its world-class solutions for effective wind energy management at stand G34 in Hall 27.

Belden offers innovative products and solutions for both onshore and offshore wind power applications that help to reduce downtime, whilst at the same time meeting reliability, safety and security needs for effective wind farm management. With a proven track record in reliability and high quality, Belden solutions are deployed in around 80% of European made wind turbines.

Thanks to this strong track-record, Belden is able to offer a range of innovative products for Wind Energy Management comprising the Belden®, Hirschmann and Lumberg Automation™ brands, for effective cabling, networking and connectivity. At the Hanover Fair, Belden will highlight its fully integrated solutions for the fast, easy and safe installation and operation of wind farms in challenging environments.

New products to be featured at the Hanover Fair include the Hirschmann BAT-C, an industry-grade IP65 WLAN client. This basic and inexpensive client can be cost-effectively deployed in any WLAN installation where there is no need for high-end clients.

Supporting the new IEEE 802.11n transmission standard, the BAT-C has a data rate of up to 150 Mbps. Fast roaming ensures an uninterrupted connection while switching from one radio cell to another.

Belden will also introduce the Hirschmann OCTOPUS 24M-8PoE with the ability to deliver PoE through 8 connections so that more applications can be powered at once.

The main emphasis will be on complete solutions for onshore and offshore wind parks, using Belden® industrial Ethernet and fiber wire and cable systems, the full range of Hirschmann switches, as well as Multiport Firewall; Lumberg Automation connectors and actuators; and the Belden®/Hirschmann modular industrial patch panel (MIPP).

Ute Decker, Vertical Marketing Manager Renewables says: “In an industry where stable operation and maximum uptime are key requirements, Belden offers a range of highly cost-efficient future-proofed solutions that fully comply with all required standards. From the effective transmission of telemetric data to video monitoring of windfarms, Belden offers complete solutions for the successful management of windfarms.”
