For high-resolution dynamic measurement of position, speed, and velocity, Baumer's MHXX Series hollow-shaft, large-bore, magnetic rotary encoders contain no bearings, so measurement is contact-free and components do not wear. The robust encoders offer an IP67-rated housing and fully encapsulated read head electronics for performance in high shock and vibration environments. Operating temperature range is from -40 to +100ºC (-40 to +212ºF). All compact MHXX Series products feature thin rotors and are designed for use on shafts from 20 to 740 mm (0.8 to 29 in). Large clearances between the rotor and sensing head improve mounting with set-crews, clamping rings, or clamping fixtures. The Series is available with incremental or sine-cosine outputs and withstands vibration to 30 g and shock to 300 g. Suitable applications include equipment and machinery in motion control, textile production, wood processing, packaging, machine tool, and general industrial applications.

Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. “Some of the companies we work with are running out of credits and unfortunately still struggling with Tier 4,” explained Tristan Donley, Technical Director, Off-Highway Heavy Vehicles North American for Exa, a supplier of software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
Engineers are adding sensors, more powerful micros and faster networks as they automate tasks and pave the way to autonomy.
