Press Release Summary:
With diameters of 30 and 40 mm, EcoMag 30 and EcoMag 40 are incremental encoders that fit into space-restricted applications and offer resolutions from 2-1,024 ppr. Absolute counterparts, MagRes 30 and MagRes 40 encoders, provide single-turn resolutions up to 10 bits and SSI output. Max rotational speed is 12,000 rpm. While both 30 mm sensors have shaft diameters of 5 mm, 40 mm hollow shaft sensor accepts shaft diameters to 12 mm. All are resistant to shock and vibration.

Compact Magnetic Incremental and Absolute Encoders Resist Harsh and Dirty Environments
Southington, Conn. - September 12, 2006.... Baumer Electric has introduced four new magnetic encoders designed to deliver excellent reliability in harsh and contaminated operating environments. With diameters of just 30 and 40 mm, these compact sensors fit easily into space restricted applications.
The EcoMag 30 and EcoMag 40 are incremental encoders that offer resolutions from two (2) to 1024 ppr. Their absolute counterparts, the MagRes 30 and MagRes 40 encoders provide single-turn resolutions up to 10 bits and SSI output. Maximum rotational speed for the sensors is 12,000 rpm. Both 30 mm sensors will have shaft diameters of 5 mm, while the 40 mm hollow shaft sensor accepts shaft diameters to 12 mm.
As they are magnetic rather than optical sensors, the EcoMag and MagRes are extremely robust and offer high shock and vibration resistance. They resist contamination from dust and moisture and provide excellent performance in harsh and dirty environments.
For more information on the EcoMag 30 and 40 and the MagRes 30 and 40 encoders, contact Baumer Electric at (800) 937-9336, through the Internet at www.baumerelectric.com, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Baumer Electric is a leader in precision sensing. As a manufacturer of all types of high-quality position sensors since 1952, the company offers customer-oriented sensor solutions for every automation need.
