Project Introduction
   Wind farms are springing up across world as wind power has been identified as a key growth component for the country’s economy. Comprised of an expansive network of many turbine towers, wind farms are usually located in harsh environments with extreme temperatures. For example, offshore temperatures can even fall below -10°C. Although wires are usually used inside a wind tower to link the turbine at the top to an Ethernet LAN or RS232/485 that connects all the towers on the wind farm to a remote control station, these solutions are not always feasible or cost-effective to deploy, such as on an offshore wind farm. As a result, system integrators have been turning to wireless solutions to keep their wind turbines connected in even the harshest environments.
 
System Requirements

Wind turbine & wind turbine controller
Server/DSL connection needs a static IP Address
Install TCP2COM- Virtual Comport on the computer and configure Port Forwarding to the computer.
Install Vestas Remote Panel Software
 
M2M-ACME Solution
 
   M2M-ACME’s wireless modem MA220 support RS232/485. The wind controller with the Optical Interface&Serial Interface. For optical interface could use the “RS232 To Optical Interface”, then connect to the MA220. For serial interface could connect to MA220 directly.
   The M2M-ACME MA220 was the ideal choice for our customer’s operation because this technology could support the GSM/GRPS/WCDMA network and auto-reconnect to the server as soon as the network recover.
   Customer is now able to establish the final connection between central control and their remote site with an open, industry-certified, robust networking solution. The M2M-ACME MA220 as well as the entire M2M-ACME wireless product, prove that remote data acquisition don’t always require a complex and expensive solution.


  The topology as below :
