Robust incremental encoder suitable for heavy industry

19 August 2011

For rolling mills, mining industry and crane systems, Johannes Hübner Giessen can now supply an incremental encoder, the FG/FGH 40, which is capable of operating under the conditions imposed by these harsh industrial environments. The robust aluminium housing of the FG 40 (solid shaft) and the FGH 40 (hollow shaft version) resist vibration and shock loads, and thanks to its axial shaft seal the device is protected to IP 67. The device offers a resolution of up to one million pulses per rotation.

A large-sized terminal box means terminating the FG 40 is extremely easy, while tension clamp terminals with integrated automatic adjustment guarantee connection reliability. The FG 40 is designed for temperatures up to 70 degrees Celsius as standard and can, as an option, be mofified to operate over temperature ranges between -40 and 100 degrees Celsius.

The housing is saltwater-proof, allowing use in maritime applications.

The FG 40/FGH 40 is a development of Johannes Hübner Giessen's FG 4/FGH 4 series, which means that it is both compatible and easily interchangeable with modules from that series.
