SICK: Incremental encoders

Low-cost encoders are ideal for light duty applications with limited installation space.
FILED IN:  Controls  > Machine components

SICK announces the launch of the DBS36 and DBS50 incremental encoders. The 36 mm housing of the DBS36 and the 50 mm housing of the DBS50 provide a compact housing design that is ideal for applications with limited installation space.

Their small size and low profile make the DBS36 and DBS50 ideal for providing reliable speed feedback information for light duty applications requiring 100-2,500 pulses per revolution. A universal cable outlet is designed for use in tight spaces and makes flexible cable routing ­ in either the axial or radial direction ­ possible.

In addition to small spaces, the DBS encoders can also be used in dusty or humid environments due to their IP 65 enclosure rating. An operating temperature between -20° C and 85° C makes them ideal for use in outdoor applications. Plus, a wide variety of mounting brackets and couplings ensure quick, low-cost installation on packaging, printing, textile and woodworking machines.
