Winds of Change with GiHCS®

GiHCS® Industrial Cabling Solution from OFS Answers the Call

Industrial Ethernet provides seamless data integration within the control systems of wind turbines with real-time visibility to operational data for wind farms and their operators. Ethernet has dramatically ­improved the data collection and exchange landscape, but harsh physical conditions of installed cable plants remain a challenge.

Issues of system reliability and cable ­installation ­simplicity abound:

  • Electrical noise
  • Widely fluctuating temperatures
  • High vibration
  • Exposure to industrial oils
  • The need for more rapid restoration of damaged cabling
  • The need for simpler modifications

These are the real-world challenges faced by turbine designers. The GiHCS solution from OFS answers the call with durable high-bandwidth multimode optical fiber cabling solutions, strength enhanced glass, ruggedized industrial cables, and crimp/cleave SC connector technology, making plug-in interoperability with common GBIC transceivers and reliable ­transmission of Ethernet data possible. Additionally, SC-RJ is a small form factor connector, small enough to fit within the space of a standard RJ-45 electrical ­connector.
