Absolute encoder now even more robust with improved performance
Huebner upgrades series 40 and 60 for extreme operating conditions
"Our new absolute encoders are characterized by components that combine even better performance with more durable construction techniques. This means our measuring devices are ideal for use in heavy industry," says Frank Tscherney, Managing Director at Johannes Huebner Giessen. Thick aluminium casing and the sealed interior guarantee that the encoders remain absolutely reliable even in the most extreme ambient or industrial conditions. All devices are equipped with secured bolt connections to protect against vibration, together with feather keys and keyways for formfit shaft connections. The new series are also constructed to attain protection classes IP 66 / IP 67, making them suitable for use in saline environments.
Series 40 with rapid scanning of up to 16 bit
The series 40 is available in two versions. One has a solid shaft (11 or 14 mm in diameter) for mounting the encoder using a coupling, while the other has a hollow shaft (20 mm in diameter) for direct mounting of the encoder on the drive shaft. Single-turn resolution reaches 16 bit max. (65,536 steps), while multi-turn resolution reaches 12 bit (4,096 revolutions). If requested, i.e. for additional attachments, Huebner can also supply a second shaft end for the solid-shaft device. This permits an encoder to be designed so it is capable of withstanding temperatures as low as -40 °C and shocks of up to 450 g.
The new series 60 models are hollow-shaft devices with a bore diameter of max. 50 mm and feather keyway. This series of absolute encoders is particularly suitable for attaching additional devices. Thanks to its B14 flange it offers a stable basis for further attachments.
