Absolute encoder now more robust
04 July 2013
Johannes Huebner Giessen has modified the series 40 and 60 of its absolute encoders to withstand use under extreme operating and ambient conditions – as can be found in steelworks and rolling mills, mining, ports, and crane systems.
Compared with current models, the new series is equipped with larger ball bearings with a higher dynamic load rating, so the absolute encoders are less affected by wear and damage during prolonged heavy use.
Huebner has also expanded the range of available interfaces – now, there is a parallel output additionally to familiar interface types such as Profibus, Profinet, Devicenet, Ethercat and SSI.
