From innovative axle encoders, precise pressure and level sensors to high-speed cameras: Baumer has more than 50 years of experience in designing sensors for the railway industry. As an owner-managed family business customers worldwide trust the know-how of the Baumer Group. Baumer stands for partnership, precision, a pioneering spirit, a broad range of services and international awareness. With our values we create a thread that runs from development through production to contact with our customers.
Saving installation cost was driving the development of the unique multi-unit encoder concept of Baumer. Up to 4 encoder units can be integrated integrated into one sensor, each encoder units is independent from each other and can configured independently, e.g. interfaces, pulse-per-revolution (ppr) and other settings. This concept reduces the number of connectors and cables from the axle to the car body and with this, it reduces the risk of damages due to external impacts.
BPIK and BPIV signals enable torsional vibration detection with ultimate dynamics and precision, by unsurpassed signal quality and robustness, high resolution and zero backlash. This cuts down on wear while improving traction and passenger safety and comfort.
