The DFS60 is a high-resolution incremental encoder with a diameter of 60 mm. It offers lots of mechanical and electrical interfaces and a housing made from aluminum or stainless steel. You can program the encoder yourself, if you want. A key feature is the range of options for programming the electrical parameters, e.g., the output signal level, the number of pulses per revolution, or the zero pulse width. This makes the DFS60 highly suitable for demanding applications as well. The high enclosure rating, wide temperature range, and wide-set ball bearings ensure a high level of ruggedness and make the DFS60 the ideal encoder for industrial applications with harsh ambient conditions.

An array of program options
Resolution, counting direction and zero pulse are only a few examples of settings that the user can program individually with the DFS60. Both the compact PGT-10-Pro hand-held programming device and the PGT-08-S PC-based tool are available for this purpose.
Flexibility is key
The DFS60 offers various electrical and mechanical connection types, providing a high degree of flexibility. Thanks to the plug-in cable connection and broad portfolio of matching adapter cables, the DFS60 incremental encoder can be adapted to fit a wide variety of electrical connection types. The hollow shaft version of the DFS60 can be adapted to different shaft diameters using collets.
Encoders for rough environments
The DFS60 is suitable for rough environments, and applications with particularly harsh ambient conditions can be handled with DFS60 Inox encoders. The housing, flange, shaft and stator coupling are made entirely of stainless steel (1.4305). DFS60 Inox
