Incremental encoder complies with IECEx standard

23 July 2013

EEx HOG 161 is the latest Baumer HeavyDuty incremental encoder in explosion-proof design with IECEx certifcation in device category 2 G.

The encapsulated, pressure-proof device for enhanced safety 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 it to be used in any countries that has adopted the IECEx standard.

The encoder operates on the optical sensing technique and depending on the product variant provides 250to 2.500 impulses per turn. Inner through-hollow shaft diameters from 30 to 70mm, high bearing load capacity of 650 N radial and 450 N axial ensure maximum service life.

The robust housing is said to reliably protect the encoder against adverse ambient conditions and the large terminal box allows for four different mounting positions to ease installation.
