Measuring wheel encoders

High-resolution, programmable measuring wheel incremental encoder

Your Benefits

  • Universal-use spring arm ensures fast and simple mounting
  • The high level of spring tension enables use in harsh environmental conditions
  • Reduced storage costs and downtime due to programmability
  • Connector-in cable connection in radial or axial direction enables customer-specific cable solutions
  • Excellent concentricity even at high speeds
  • Permanent and safe operation due to a high enclosure rating, temperature resistance and a long bearing lifetime
  • Programmability via the PGT-08 programming software and the PGT-10-S display programming tool allow the encoder to be adapted flexibly and quickly according to customer needs
  • Programmable zero pulse position simplifies installation


High-resolution, programmable measuring wheel incremental encoder

The DFV60 high-resolution measuring wheel encoder is an extremely robust solution for determining position and speed directly on the conveyor belt, even in applications where the measuring surface is subject to high levels of vibrations. The DFV60 consists of an incremental encoder with a mounting arm and two measuring wheels. The spring arm is available as an accessory. Extensive programmability of output signal, zero pulse and lines counts from 1 to 65,536 enable customer-specific adaptations.
