Baumer's (Southington, CT) Incremental
Heavy Duty Encoder HOG 86 L with a fiber
optic interface is a solution for long-distance
transmission of generator feedback. The sig-
nal transmission allows for maximum 2,200-
m cable length and is fully immune against EMI. Features include:
A redundant encoder variant with simultaneous electric and optic signal transmission.
A terminal box rotatable through 180°, IP66 protection, and compliance to corrosion category C4.
An M23 mating connector, cable outlet, or redundant sensing outputs.
An operational temperature range from - 40° to +100 °C.
High Radiation Hardness
Renishaw (Hoffman Estates, IL), in collaboration with Tesat-Spacecom
(Germany), has introduced a new space-qualified angle encoder with
high radiation hardness, high accuracy, and qualification for 15 years in
a GEO space environment. Features include:
150 g vibration resistance.
A robust optical detection principle.
A power consumption that is typically <1 W.
A short-range error that is <0.5 µrad RMS and long-range error
that is < 5 µrad (without mechanical errors).
A resolution of <0.5 µrad.
An on-board FPGA (field-programmable gate array).

ronments. Features of the new 855
and 865 model encoders include:
Heavy duty bearings and a
Separate scanning LEDs and
Galvanically isolated outputs
that may be connected to 2 separate systems.
High voltage TTL, high voltage/
high current TTL, RS-422, and
standard 5 VDC TTL output
