Some of the safety solutions from Schmersal in wind mills are:

Safety switch with separate actuators for fixed doors: When the door is removed/opened power will be interrupted, the machine in motion is brought to halt and thus ensure safety.
Emergency stop: Emergency stop with box is used in nacelle and in control panel to shut down the system in case of an emergency.
Limit switch: To know the tilting end of individual blades as a part of pitch control, blades rotate on its axis based on wind flow to have maximum force. Schmersal Limit switch is mounted inside the blades to know end of rotation.
