SICK|STEGMANN’s DFS 60 Incremental Encoders are available in blind hollow shaft versions. These blind hollow shaft encoders are designed to reduce the potential for contamination, making them suitable for use in dirty or dusty environments with water washdown cleansing. DFS60 blind hollow shaft encoders deliver from 1 to 65,536 ppr with reliable operation in temperatures ranging from -20°C up to 100°C. A radial/axial cable outlet reduces installation depth and allows a single encoder type to be used for various applications. An integrated stator coupling is housed in spring steel to increase bearing life for error free angle measurement, and it allows users to adjust the shaft and axial movement of the motor shaft. The encoders are available with a TTL or HTL interface.
