DAYTON, OH – SICK|STEGMANN’s DFS 60 Incremental Encoders are now available in fully programmable versions to accommodate any value from 1 to 65,536 pulses per revolution – something no other encoder in the market today can claim. With the help of a simple programming tool, users, system integrators and distributors are able to select any number of lines between 1 and 65,536 via their PC or Notebook. They are also able to set the zero pulse width to 90°, 180° or 270° and program the electrical interface to either HTL or TTL.
The DFS60 is a universal device for determining angles, positions, speeds and accelerations in automation technology. They are available in blind hollow shaft, through hollow shaft and solid shaft models, and boast a revolutionary mechanical design and a metal code disc for increased robustness and temperature tolerances. Additionally, the new design allows a 30 mm distance between bearings which decreases vibration and increases bearing life.
Lastly, these revolutionary encoders come with an option of a pluggable outlet that can be used as either as radial or axial cable outlet which reduces installation depth and provides simple cable replacement, if needed.
