Absolute encoder AM…(H) 41 with SIL 3 certification

Specifically developed for use in safety-related applications in extreme environmental conditions.

Case Study: Bucket wheel excavator

It is planned to equip a bucket wheel excavator with the latest automation and safety technologies within the scope of a complete modernisation project. To achieve the required safety categories identified by a risk assessment, safe position values are required for both slewing gear mechanisms between the superstructure and substructure of the excavator as well as between the loading boom and the substructure of the excavator. Read more in our Case Study “Large open-cast mining machinery – safe position”.

Product article: Absolute encoders with SIL 3

Johannes Hübner Giessen presents the new series of absolute encoders with SIL CL3 certificate for deployment in applications requiring certified compliance with functional safety requirements. Specifically developed for heavy industry the AMP(H) 41 (PROFIsafe via PROFIBUS DP) and AMPN(H) 41 (PROFIsafe via PROFINET IO) are certified to DIN EN 61508 up to Safety Integrity Level SIL CL3 and to EN ISO 13849 up to Performance Level PL e. Utilizing these functionally safe encoders exempts the user from having to provide separate verification of the functional safety of the position sensors. Open product article…

The catalog offers customers and interested readers basic information at a glance about our absolute encoder series with or without safety certification.
