Barlow Technology supplies a range of Encoders and Drive control systems from Hubner –Giessen, a world leader in the manufacture of incremental encoders, absolute encoders, tacho-generators and custom built motors for the Steel Industry, Paper Mills, Ports and Harbours, and many other industries.
For more than 70 years the name Johannes Hübner has become well known for reliable measurement and encoder technology as well as for the most modern tailor-made drive engineering.
Hubner – Giessen develop and manufacture high technology products for industry. Along with analogue tachos and incremental encoders for speed control, our absolute encoders in addition with electronic overspeed switches are applied in mining, rolling mills, shipbuilding and paper industries.
HÜBNER GIESSEN encoder solutions with optical fibre technology have now penetrated railway and harbour engineering, e. g. for high-speed-trains, the most modern shiploaders and container cranes. Specially developed electronics and software have replaced former mechanical components and support our encoders to obtain integrated solutions.
Offering a wide range of different solutions, we are confident that we have the solution to your application.
With newly developed products, Barlow Technology are able to supply you with the latest technology, offering a whole host of different benefits.
Absolute encoders from Johannes Huebner Giessen are designed for operations in extreme operating conditions: They have a robust, thick-walled aluminium casing and large ball bearings with a high dynamic load rating; the encapsulated interior space remains sealed even when the generously dimensioned terminal box is open. All screwed connections are vibration resistant. The single-turn version of the absolute encoder with a solid shaft AS… 40 is compatible with all customary interfaces, such as PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET IO, DeviceNet, EtherCAT, SSI and parallel interfaces and can be supplied with an incremental output, if required. The single-turn version offers a maximum resolution up to 16 bit (steps per revolution: 65536). A second shaft end is available on request.
A multiturn version of the absolute encoder from Johannes Huebner Giessen is also available. The solid shaft version of the absolute encode AM… 40 is equipped with all customary interfaces, such as PROFIBUS DP, PROFINET IO, DeviceNet, EtherCAT, SSI or a parallel interface and can be supplied with an incremental output, if required. The multiturn version offers a maximum resolution up to 12 bit (number of revolutions: 4096). The absolute encoder AM… 40 mult-iturn is considered to be the standard version for heavy duty applications. It has a robust aluminium casing and large ball bearings with a high dynamic load rating; the interior space remains sealed even when the terminal box is open. Consequently, it is extremely vibration and shock resistant.
Barlow Technology supply highly accurate Electronic Overspeed switches; to replace historic, inaccurate mechanical overspeed switches; through our longstanding partner, Johannes Hübner Giessen.
