Ping Monitor

Blade Monitoring Hardware

The Ping monitoring device is usually attached magnetically to the base of each wind turbine tower. It is self contained, using solar power and satellite communication.

Once installed, it immediately starts measuring the sound generated by the turbine blades as they rotate. The device detects damage by monitoring sound changes generated on the surface moving through the air, which it evaluates for indications of blade damage and transmits the data to the cloud.

Ping Cloud

Cloud-based blade data

Wind turbine operators can review blade data and analyse remotely. User-defined notification criteria can be set so key stakeholders remain informed on any significant blade condition changes.

New Ice Detection System

In Ping we keep working on better and more efficient ways to provide constant and accurate monitoring of wind turbine blades by innovating and designing new solutions. For this reason, we developed an Ice Detection System. Ice on turbine blades is a significant issue in some colder climates, causing damage and potentially becoming a safety hazard. This can lead to turbines being shut down for long periods and subject to dangerous ice load, resulting in revenue and energy shortages. We have developed a less costly and more effective software upgrade to our system, that continuously monitors blades to detect icing along with any change or damage, providing additional blade icing detection time compared to traditional methods.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Ping Monitor work?

Our technology continuously listens and analyses the sound generated by any damage on wind turbine blades to detect defects. Ping Monitor can detect cracks (including root cracks), splits, holes, pitting and lightening damage.

What does Ping Cloud look like?

Ping Cloud uses a simple and easy to use dashboard which lets you quickly review and analyse results and identify which turbines require maintenance.

How many devices are required?

We recommend one per wind turbine.

How big is it?

The main unit is 200mm in diameter which connects to a power and communications module.

How is it installed?

After you receive the device, your own technicians can easily connect and power on each unit and then attach it directly to the base of each wind turbine tower using its magnetic mounts. The unit turns on automatically 5 minutes after it is connected to it's power and communications module.

Does it require power or WiFi?

No, it doesn't require connection to either power or data.

What maintenance is required?

The device is largely maintenance free. It doesn't require external power or communications and its solar panel maintains a battery charge.
