Hot and Cold Rolling Mills / Main drives: Modernization of existing encoder installations

  • Easy exchange or extension of existing encoder solutions
  • Cost-efficient, as encoders can be exchanged selectively
  • Implementation in the shortest possible time, optionally SIL certified
  • Planning, delivery and mounting support from a single source

Hübner Giessen standard encoder solution for main drives


All around the world Hübner Giessen encoder solutions are
installed at main drives of Hot and Cold Rolling Mills.

These large motors often run for many years and after a while
the question about a possible encoder modernization arises to
provide new or additional electrical outputs.

Exploded view


With the encoder solutions implemented by us, the scope for a
modernization is limited to a minimum. For example, our FGH
6 and FGH 8 encoders have an integrated mounting flange ex
works. Thereby an additional encoder can easily be added to
the existing encoder system.

This could be a freely programmable overspeed switch or a
universal encoder system with fi ber optic signal transmission
(both optionally SIL certified). But also an additional incremental
encoder with different pulse rate could be an option.

In any case you can count on our support for the complete project.
