The DFS 60 incremental encoders from Sick|Stegmann, Dayton, OH, are available in fully programmable versions to accommodate any value from 1 to 65,536 pulses per revolution. With the help of a simple programming tool, users, system integrators and distributors can 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 DFS 60 is a universal device to determine angles, positions, speeds and accelerations in automation technology. It is available in blind-hollow shaft, through-hollow shaft and solid shaft models. The encoder’s robust design allows a 30mm distance between bearings, which decreases vibration and increases bearing life.
