Baumer announces a line of optical incremental encoders designed to solve operational challenges in the ports industry. The HOG86 optical incremental encoder series is optimally designed for rugged environments and incorporates Baumer’s robust design that minimizes device damage due to vibration, shock, and shaft currents often experienced with other products.
The encoders are failsafe in any environment featuring a heavy-duty housing and sealing system with long-term stability and specialized housing and shaft seals to ensure long-term compliance to IP 66 rating. The encoder line also offers various mounting options for torque support.
Motion feedback is a critical issue in today’s ports, and failure of feedback devices can lead to serious safety and lost-time situations. Baumer’s broad product offering can help sites get back online in an emergency and drastically reduce future failures.
