Incremental encoders
DBS60 Inox

Your Benefits

  • Stainless steel housing provides a high level of resistance to environmental influences
  • Ideally suited for applications requiring high protection against aggressive media and cleaning agents
  • IP67 and IP69K (DBS60I-W*) enclosure ratings for optimum ingress protection
  • Bacterial growth prevention through clean design (IP69K variant)
  • Corrosion resistance with 316L (V4A) stainless steel (IP69K variant)
  • Design of the IP69K variant suitable for high-pressure, warm-water washdown typical for environments in the food and beverage industry


The combination of a complete stainless steel design and a rugged shaft seal make the DBS60 Inox incremental encoder resistant to harsh environmental conditions. Its stainless steel housing is offered with standard IP67 or IP69K (DBS60I-W*) enclosure ratings and has a diameter of only 58 mm, thereby enabling it to be used in challenging applications with limited installation space. The IP69K DBS60I-W* variant with its patented deflector shield, which protects the shaft seal, is an ideal product for applications in washdown environments. With various mechanical and communication interfaces as well as a resolution of up to 5,000 pulses, the DBS60 Inox fulfills customer requirements from many different fields of industry.
