BOGEN - Magnetics that count
BOGEN develops and produces high-precision variable magnetic scales and measuring systems to measure angle, distance, position. As the available space for position measurement is always tight, BOGEN has introduced a more compact version of the magnetic measuring head IKS9. In addition to the existing design style with an 11 mm wide body, the measuring head IKS9 is now available in 9 mm width to be used in the most confined spaces. Despite reducing the package size, the IKS9 benefits remain the same - the highest accuracy for magnetic measurements with freely selectable resolutions. The IKS9 impresses customers in automation, instrumentation and motion control applications with an extremely high accuracy and a particularly high degree of modularity.
BOGEN magnetic heads comply with the relevant national and international standards (ISO, DIN, IATA, ABA, etc.) and can be used with various magnetic coercivities. Special solutions for reading magnetic ink (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition: MICR) and for recognizing and validating banknotes are also a part of their product portfolio.
BOGEN has been developing and producing magnetic heads for demanding applications since 1951. Their core competence is in the design and implementation of customer specific magnetic solutions for applications such as access control in multi-storey car parks, for the detection of credit card information in ATMs or magnetic sensors for the reliable validation of bank notes.
