Absolute encoder series

Baumer’s absolute HeavyDuty encoder series HMG 10 and PMG 10 offer a resilient housing, optimally spaced fixed/floating bearings on both sides, and generously sized hybrid ball bearings. These features provide unrivalled long service life and reliability, according to Baumer. The robust magnetic precision sensing supplies a signal quality that is nearly identical to that of optical sensing principles, but withstanding dust, dirt and condensation. Even at high temperatures up to +100°C (212°F) and in adverse environments, the shock- and vibration-resistant sensing technology ensures high-precision signals for maximum processing accuracy and control quality in the application. The HeavyDuty encoders are particularly suitable for steel and rolling mills, cranes and lifting systems, and material handling and conveyer systems. For more information, visit
