Absolute encoder series 40 and 60 from Johannes Huebner Giessen

Different output signals and constructions, numerous combination options and extremely sturdy – all features that distinguish the 40 and 60 series of absolute encoders from Johannes Huebner Giessen. Features that ensure they are particularly suitable for upgrade and new projects with high demands.

Several signals from a single device

The 40 series offers device versions with 11 and 14 mm solid shafts as well as hollow shafts up to 20 mm in diameter. The larger 60 series is available with hollow shafts up to 50 mm. As an interesting alternative to standard designs with just one terminal box, there are device versions available with several output signals out of two terminal boxes to fulfil exacting application demands on signal variety.

In addition to the different bus interfaces such as PROFIBUS, PROFINET, DeviceNet and EtherCAT further output signals are also available in the form of SSI, parallel, 4-20 mA, 0-10 V and incremental. Thomas Brandenburger head of the Project Management department, explains: "Until now, the customer had to install two devices in series in his system when two signals were required. The disadvantages are: longer installation scenarios, an additional coupling – and more space is often required than is actually available. By contrast, a compact device with two terminal boxes facilitates several output signals from one device."

This is needed, for example, for upgrade projects when two signals are required for two different controllers or automation levels. Since the encoder offers the same signal twice, the customer is able to dispense with an interface between controller 1 and controller 2. Equipped with two independent scannings, electronics and multiturn gear systems the encoders are designed to ensure maximum redundancy. The multiturn version is implemented utilizing proven mechanical gears, which ensures they are independent of any power supply as a consequence.

Combining an absolute value output with an additional incremental signal means it is possible to make use of the advantages both signal types offer. The absolute value provides feedback on the precise position without homing or pulse counting. Pulse edge evaluation of the incremental signal is performed in quasi real-time, and is available without a prior bus scan; rapid control processes, such as those necessary for highly dynamic drives, are possible as a consequence.

Combine to suit your needs

There are a wide variety of options available to combine the different interfaces. Fundamentally, it is possible to combine all of the available output signals with one another such as PROFIBUS, PROFINET, DeviceNet, EtherCAT, SSI, parallel, current, voltage and incremental.

Johannes Huebner Giessen operates in the following fields of industry: steel and rolling mills, mining, container cranes, railway technology, hydroelectric power plants, wind turbine generators and power systems. The company is widely recognized as the industry leader in the fields of measurement, encoder and drive technologies. In more than 80 years Johannes Huebner Giessen has installed several thousand applications in heavy industry. The specialist offers an all-round complete service from determining on-site installation conditions through to installing the complete encoder systems. The company presently employs 100 staff.

Explosive atmospheres are a special field in heavy industry subject to stringent safety requirements. With this in mind Johannes Hübner Giessen developed the incremental encoder Ex FG 40 for applications in extremely harsh environments and stringent explosion protection requirements. These include explosive gas environments such as in the production of oil and gas on platforms and offshore drilling rigs, petrochemical plants, oil and gas processing, paint shops in the steel
Incremental encoder for standard motors to be showcased at the METEC 2015
As the specialist for customized encoder solutions in heavy industry Johannes Huebner Fabrik elektrischer Maschinen GmbH now offers an incremental encoder for standard motors, auxiliary drives and secondary drives in the form of its FG(HJ) 2. The FG(HJ) 2 not only combines the customary benefits of Huebner devices such as a long service life and high levels of reliability, it also meets the technical requirements of machines operating in normal
Johannes Huebner Giessen now offers looper encoders with incremental output
The Johannes Huebner Giessen encoder specialists have developed a looper encoder with incremental output for the specific requirements of steelworks and rolling mills. The FGL 40 captures the rotating angle of the looper and feeds the collected data back to the control system in real time using the new incremental interface in order to optimise tension control of the metal strip between the rolling stands. The precision electronics enable up
