Magnetic Encoder HS44

The HS44 offers high performance, magnetic durability and moisture resistance in a compact package with drop-in ease of replacement at a great value. Our HS44 encoders are a direct fit for 12mm, 16mm and 17mm (10:1 taper) generator (and motor) center-bolt shaft systems. The optional ceramic bearings offer high voltage isolation from shaft currents.


The Ideal Wind Generator Encoder!

  • Simple Installation
  • Up to 10000 PPR
  • Replaces Competitive Models without Rewiring
  • High Power Outputs Standard
  • -40°C to +100°C Operation*
  • Fully Insulated from Motor Shaft Currents*
  • 2 Year No-Hassle Warranty
  • No fragile optics, no glass disks
  • All electronics fully potted/encapsulated
  • Cast aluminium heavy duty housing


The HS44 is engineered to be a drop-in replacement for Baumer Hubner HOG 8, & 9 models, as well as Leine & Linde 861, 862 & 865 models. And it adds superior durability and diagnostics!

Our encoders have superior shaft seals and bearings that stay sealed to keep out contamination caused by temperature cycling and liquid sprays.

The HS44 offers high power outputs that can drive cables up to 1000’ [300m] with full short circuit and over-voltage protection! On-board diagnostics check all aspects of the encoder - from the sensor to the output line driver circuit - and provide a clear indicator that the encoder is working well. No more fumbling with a PC or oscilloscope to determine if your encoder is working properly!

Often, optical encoders fail because of dust or water contamination that prevents the sensor from seeing the optical disk. The HS44 advanced magnetic technology sees through contamination. The fully potted circuit board that ignores water, oil, dust and dirt. This ensures your machine keeps working, even in the toughest application environments.
