- Doubled safety by redundant sensing
- Integrated functional monitoring
- Protection against shaft currents
- Optical sensing
The redundant optical encoder with integrated functional monitoring HOG 86 M is specifically conceived for harsh environments and adds another heavy duty product to the Baumer portfolio. It provides two-channel detection of relative position or speed what is frequently required for system error tracking and troubleshooting. The redundant optional Enhanced Monitoring System (EMS) adds another plus to safety. The system is based on a rapid microprocessor that is consistently monitoring the reliable encoder operation over the entire speed range. The encoder provides up to 2.500 ppr, endures even strong impacts by shocks and vibrations and is capable of maximum shaft loads of 200 N axial and 300 N radial.
The operating state is visualized by two LEDs embedded on top of the housing. By virtue of the 99 mm housing and measuring only 69,5 mm in axial length the encoder fits even confined installation space, with no compromise to protection: IP66 compliant, specifically corrosion-proof and capable of extreme temperatures ranging from -40 to +100 °C it is predestined for demanding tasks like generator feedback in wind power plants or applications in the paper and metal processing industry. Depending on the prevailing requirements, HOG 86 M is available in several configurations: HOG 86 M with turnable terminal box, HOG 86 M TE with terminal box turnable on a 180° angle and EMS functionality, HOG 86 M F with radial flange connector and HOG 86 M FE with radial flange connector and EMS.
