Baumer: ATEX, IECEx approved encoder
The EEx HOG 161 incremental heavy-duty encoder from Baumer is compliant to both ATEX Directive 94/9/EG for potentially explosive atmospheres (II 2 G Ex d e IIC T6 Gb) and IECEx scheme (Ex d e IIC T6 Gb), allowing deployment in any of the 30 countries worldwide that have adopted the IECEx standard.
The encapsulated, pressure-proof encoder operates on the optical sensing technique and depending on the product variant provides 250 to 2.500 impulses/turn. Inner through-hollow shaft diameters from 30 to 70 mm, high bearing load capacity of 650 N radial, and 450 N axial ensure maximum service life. The housing reliably protects the encoder against adverse ambient conditions, and the large terminal box enabling four different mounting positions will considerably ease electrical installation.
