Measuring wheel encoders

High-resolution, programmable measuring wheel incremental encoder

Your Benefits

  • The universally-applicable spring arm enables quick and easy mounting
  • The high spring tension means it can be used in applications with harsh ambient conditions
  • Reduced storage costs and downtime due to programmability
  • Plug-in cable connection in radial or axial direction enables customer-specific cable solutions
  • Excellent concentricity even at high speeds
  • Long-term and reliable operation thanks to a high enclosure rating, temperature resistance and bearing lifetime
  • The ability to program using the PGT-08 programming software and the PGT-10-S display programming device enables fast and flexible adaptation of the encoder to customer requirements
  • 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.
