Compact, User-programmable Incremental Encoders
SICK announced the launch of the DFS2X line of programmable incremental encoders. These 16-bit encoders feature a compact, rugged mechanical design and a metal code disc that fits in nearly all applications.
The DFS2X encoders offer shaft, blind hollow and through hollow versions in a small 2-inch housing, as well as a shaft version with a 2.5-inch housing. In addition to its small size, the IP 65-rated metal design is resistant to shock and vibrations, which reduces downtime and enables use in harsh environments. A variety of programmable options give users the ability to configure the resolution, the zero pulse phase and other settings on a single encoder, thereby reducing spare parts inventory.
