Incremental encoders
DFS60 Inox

Your Benefits

  • High resistance to environmental influences due to stainless-steel housing
  • IP67 enclosure rating and shaft sealing ring for optimum tightness
  • Simple mounting thanks to compact dimensions, even with limited installation space
  • The wide range of mechanical interfaces allows an optimal match between the encoder and the application-specific installation situation
  • High resolution up to 16 bits enables applications with demanding requirements for measurement accuracy
  • Reduces storage costs and downtimes since customers can program the encoder themselves with programming devices PGT-08-S and PGT-10-Pro
  • Programmable zero pulse position simplifies installation


The DFS60 Inox is a high-resolution incremental encoder with a diameter of 60 mm in a stainless-steel design. It offers a large range of mechanical and electrical interfaces and can also be programmed by the customer if desired. The rugged mechanical design, the wide temperature range, and the IP67 enclosure rating make the DFS60 Inox the ideal encoder for applications in harsh ambient conditions. The wide range of programming options for the electrical parameters is unique on the market. This includes the output signal level, the number of pulses per revolution, and the zero pulse width.
