Omnidea use Zemic H3G S-type Load Cells to capture high altitude wind energy



Zemic Europe B.V. (Portugal) – Omnidea uses Zemic S-type load cells, assembly and transmitters in her project H.A.W.E. (High Altitude Wind Energy). This project focuses on a high altitude platform for wind energy conversion capable of varying the altitude at which the energy is produced. Also having no fans of any type in use; it produces energy from the aerodynamic forces acting upon an airborne airfoil-like craft. If connected to the ground through a tether cable, this apparatus can convert wind energy into electrical energy, in a completely new and innovative way.

This type of construction allows a significant price reduction per unit of power installed as well as an easier implementation of the concept in off-shore applications (regardless of water depth). Omnidea is committed towards technological evolution and innovative thinking from state-of-the-art scientific knowledge.

The quality / service and price ratio from Zemic Europe convinced Omnidea to use the H3G S-type load cells, S-type assembly such as hook and eye bolts in combination with a tranmitter to convert the mV/V signal into a 4-20mA signal to measure the pulling force of the HAWE Balloons.



With the H3G Loadcells, Omnidea is able to measure the pulling force of the High Altitude Balloons.

  • Alloy steel IP67 S-type load cell
  • Specially developed for tension and compression applications like this wind energy solution (HAWE)
  • OIML approved
