      • Two sensing systems that are galvanically insulated from each other.
      • Multiple signal evaluation with twice the availability

      Optional function monitoring system EMS (Enhanced Monitoring System)

      • EMS will signal connection errors right away at installation and hence speed up commissioning
      • Monitors the vital encoder functionalities
      • Error output reports the encoder activity status
      • HOG 86 M with optional redundant EMS functionality

      Green continuous light indicates correct connection and faultless functioning of the encoder. Light rotation of the shaft verifies trouble-free operation.


      Red flashing light indicates errors during the formation of a position and red continuous light appears in case of output driver overload . If the LED remains dark, either the supply voltage has failed or the encoder is connected incorrectly.
