HeavyDuty combinations consisting of encoders, tachogenerators, and speed switches

Always a suitable combination.

Many drive applications require not only speed control but also the integration of further signals in the control. In close collaboration with users from many different industries, Baumer has for many years been the leading global manufacturer of HeavyDuty combinations which integrate encoders, tachogenerators and speed switches in one robust unit.
