In wind turbines, efficiency has top priority: the higher the availability of a turbine, the higher the profitability and the faster the investment pays off. Wind power is transferred from the turbine to the generator via a rotor gearbox. Full lubrication of all moving parts ensures a long service life and high availability of the wind turbine, thus making it essential for the oil level in the rotor gearbox to be constantly and reliably monitored.
