Function in focus: HeavyDuty encoder HOG 86E

Baumer Ltdvisit website


New HeavyDuty encoder HOG 86E by Baumer is reduced to the max: anti-corrosion aluminium alloy and function at its purest. To the user, this means cost reduction by forgoing any top coat, while lead times reduce in parallel thanks to less HOG 86E product variety. The HeavyDuty encoder is available within 48 hours.

Costs are eliminated where protective coating is not required. The bare aluminium housing of HOG 86 E is especially designed for generator and engine manufacturers or users who do not need coated components, prefer arranging for priming or top-coating themselves.

The encoder will master all the facets of HeavyDuty performance. The housing, with more than 10mm wall thickness, protects the electronics against high mechanical loads. The two-sided, generously spaced bearing assembly compensates high radial and axial shaft loads up to 450 and 350N. Isolated bearings safely protect the encoder against induced shaft currents. Breakdown voltage is 2.8kV.

While the encoder remains open during installation, the additional encapsulation will protect both sensing unit and electronics against harmful ambient impacts. Special housing and shaft seals ensure long-term IP66 protection against ingress of substances such as dust, dirt or liquids.

The optical sensing principle with up to 2500 pulses per revolution is insensitive to magnetic impacts. The technology is based on a high-integration OptoASIC, ensuring consistently high signal quality and unambiguous measured results even under most adverse conditions and at temperature fluctuations.
