An Industry First: BEI Releases UL & ATEX Rated Explosion Proof Hollow Shaft Encoder
Using the explosion proof construction method, this hazardous duty rotary encoder is housed in an enclosure that can withstand and contain an internal explosion of the most volatile gas-to-air mixture. Fitted with a flexible shaft bore design, the HS52 housing can be rigidly mounted, preventing stress to encoder bearings and providing a more secure attachment for the required hazardous area conduit fittings. Additionally, the compact hollow shaft design offers engineers space-saving advantages over traditional shafted encoders. The HS52 hazardous duty encoder is the ideal position sensing solution for use in oil and gas industries, solvent refining operations, spray painting applications, and explosive environments where space is limited and operating conditions are extreme.
