HDMag flex magnetic encoders from Baumer allow great flexibility in mounting and accurate measuring under harsh conditions on large shafts such as those in torque motors, generators, large drive units, azipod drive units (PODs), hoists and cranes, paper machinery, wind turbines, and hydroelectric plants.
Available for shaft diameters from 300 mm (11.8 in.) to more than 3m (9.8 ft), the flexible magnetic belt can buckle around the shaft using only two included screws by a single operator in mere minutes. That means that the HDMag flex encoders can be installed on existing machinery without removing parts.
The non-contact, magnetic sensing principle ensures maximum resistance to shock, vibration, dust, dirt, liquids and condensation. The flex magnetic belt encoders are available either as incremental with HTL, TTL/RS422, or 1 Vpp SinCos outputs and up to 131072 lines per revolution, or as quasi-absolute with SSI data and additional incremental output signals. With IP 67 protection class, 30g vibration, and 300g shock ratings, these encoders are suitable for the harshest applications from -40 to 185°F. The operational speed rating is up to 1,850 rpm.
