In steel and metal applications, encoders are exposed to shock, vibration and adverse ambient conditions such as dust and extreme temperatures.
Extra installation flexibility provide encoders with mounting base. Particularly in retrofitting or where using extended functionalities at existing measuring spots, these encoders allow for quick integration without much effort. Installation separated from the machine disengages the encoder from any transferred shock and vibration impacts.
HeavyDuty encoders by Baumer reliably supply the converter position information even at strong shock and vibration and in harsh environments. This way, they ensure smooth operation at the correct position.
Encoders are a key automation element at tilting drives and significantly contribute towards safety. Their precise signals support safe operation control and prevent the converter from uncontrolled tilting or mispositioning.
