Wind farms are typically located in harsh environments where it is exposed to shock, vibration, dust, moisture, and extreme temperatures. To generate, distribute and manage energy effectively, Axiomtek’s iCON, rBOX and HMI products provide all the tools you need to have a highly reliable industrial-grade network infrastructure. The iCON series consists of Ethernet switches, serial device servers and media converters all with IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 certification, giving you the capability to manage smart grid more efficiently and intelligently. Rigorous quality control and fanless design of Axiomtek’s rBOX embedded computers help prevent system failures and feature convenient installation and maintenance for communication control in power plant management, electricity distribution and control system. Human Machine Interface (HMI) systems are used to provide energy analysis and control, allowing users to take action for better energy management.
On a wind farm, the distance between wind turbine towers could be miles apart, and wind turbines are prone to electrical interference. It is essential for wind farms to employ rugged networking devices with long distance transmission capability for remote monitoring in harsh environments. Remote monitoring systems are used to collect and organize data generated from wind turbine towers and substations so that users in the control center can accurately control operation on the wind farm. The control center manages the state of power energy and integrates different types of power plants together. With Axiomtek’s extremely reliable and non-stop network and computing solutions, you will not only achieve, but exceed your operational goals through better management of data, assets and operations.

DIN-rail Fanless Embedded Systems
Axiomtek’s rBOX series of DIN-rail fanless embedded systems is suitable for intelligent computing and communication solutions in critical environments, such as power plant automation, facility monitoring systems, and intelligent transportation systems. The rBOX series supports an extended temperature range of -40°C to 70°C for use in extreme operating environments. The fanless design increases reliability, extends MTTR, and ultimately reduces maintenance efforts. Front accessible I/O cabling is very convenient for wiring and maintenance. The rBOX series features a redundant Ethernet LAN connection for greater availability and reliability. The redundant power inputs minimize the risk of data loss in the event of a single power failure. Their compact size with DIN-rail mounting allows for easy installation into control cabinets. The rBOX series meets Safety Agency requirements and have passed heavy industrial EMI/EMS testing. To streamline implementation of management applications, Axiomtek has launched AXView monitoring software package. Based on SNMP protocols, AXView makes it easy for system administrators to manage and monitor remote computers.
Fanless Touch Panel Computers
Axiomtek's GOT fanless touch panel computers feature compact size and highly reliable system design. Axiomtek's fanless touch panel series has unique designs and features for operation in critical indoor or outdoor industrial environments, including an anti-vibration design, extended temperature operating ranges, high brightness display, IP65-rated front bezel, and various embedded O.S. support. They are also designed with user-friendliness in mind.
