Rugged, high-performance measuring wheel incremental encoder

The compact DKV60 measuring wheel encoder is a cost-effective way to determine position and speed directly on the conveyor belt or rollers. The DKV60 consists of an incremental encoder, measuring roller, mounting plate and cable guide and is delivered fully assembled. 2 different measuring wheel surfaces enable adaptation to the measuring surface.
