IPS WindGuard™ — The new IPS Class H rewind with a 60-year log life aging curve
Our new rewind has the dielectric and mechanical strength to prevent the problems that cause premature generator failures. IPS engineers addressed specific failure modes with this next generation insulation system:
WindGuard combines the dielectric strength of PowerSeal® VPI mica tapes with the additional surge resistance of polyimide film, applied directly to the conductors using an advanced polymerization process for unsurpassed surge protection. This unique combination lets the rewind withstand the high-voltage transients and high-duty cycles associated with wind turbine generators.
The ability to maintain flexibility with zero thermal aging during rapid thermal cycling makes WindGuard the most robust insulation system offered to the wind power industry.

IPS adds Motion Amplification Technology to field service offering
This new diagnostic technology measures deflection, displacement, movement and vibration invisible to the human eye. It quantifies any movement of mechanical or structural assets with the same accuracy as a contacting displacement sensor. MAT lets us identify and solve problems in the field quickly, with IPS engineers reviewing the data remotely and collaborating with our field service technicians.
