Incremental encoders
DBS50 Core

The MultiFit Incremental Encoder

Your Benefits

  • The universal cable outlet allows for use in tight spaces and for flexible cabling
  • Face mount flange with various mounting hole patterns for easy device replacement without adapting the application
  • Face mount flange with servo groove makes mounting with servo clamps possible
  • The high flexibility of the mechanical interface of the encoder and the available accessories allow for the use of a single design in many applications
  • The compact housing diameter saves valuable space
  • Long-term and reliable operation thanks to a high enclosure rating, temperature resistance and bearing lifetime


The MultiFit Incremental Encoder

The DBS50 Core incremental encoder features impressively high mechanical flexibility, excellent technical properties, and a number of variations. The DBS50E has a face mount flange with 50 mm diameter and a solid shaft with 8 mm diameter. The housing diameter is extremely compact at 37 mm and thus saves valuable space. The face mount flange offers 2 different mounting hole patterns and a servo groove for mounting with servo clamps. The encoder has compact dimensions and a universal cable outlet that allows for cables to run in an axial or radial direction. The DBS50 Core incremental encoder is fully compatible with the DDS50E incremental encoder.
