Product Announcement from Baumer Ltd.
The hall sensor picks up the rotational direction as well as rpm speed of gear wheels with up to 20,000 pulses per second. Additionally, it is extremely robust and temperature-resistant. The special housing shape with integrated O-ring allows easy installation and thanks to the completely sealed, robust all-metal housing, the sensor is suitable for permanent operation in direct contact with the gearbox lubricant.
The non-contact hall measuring principle minimizes the abrasive wear and therefore the maintenance effort. As a result, a long-term trouble-free use of the hall sensor is guaranteed, even under the harsh conditions prevailing in rail applications.
