Incremental encoders
DBS36 Core

Your Benefits

  • The universal cable connection enables the device to be used in tight spaces and provides cable routing flexibility
  • Different flanges and the universal stator coupling make it possible to mount the device without changing the application
  • Shafts in metric and US type enable worldwide use
  • The high flexibility of the mechanical interface of the encoders and the available accessories allow a single type to be used in many applications
  • The compact housing diameter saves valuable space
  • Long-term and reliable operation thanks to a high enclosure rating, temperature resistance and bearing lifetime


The DBS36 Core incremental encoder features impressively high mechanical flexibility, excellent technical properties, and a number of variations. A blind hollow shaft with a shaft diameter of up to 8 mm and a face mount flange with 6 mm and 1/4" solid shaft are available. The type with face mount flange offers 2 different flanges with 6 different mounting hole patterns and a servo groove for mounting with servo clamps. The hollow shaft type has a universal stator coupling that can be used for multiple typical mounting hole circles. All models have compact dimensions and a universal cable connection that allows for cables to run in an axial or radial direction.
