Incremental encoders

Your Benefits

  • The compact design facilitates the integration of the encoder even where installation space is limited and helps reduce machine size
  • The flange with integrated housing enables a very compact and cost-efficient design
  • A wide variety of output signal options makes it easy to find the right solution for every application


The DLS40 incremental encoder is a reliable solution for measuring rotational speed and position. It has several unique features that redefine the way encoders work. The concept of a flange with integrated housing enables a slim, compact, and cost-efficient design. This allows easier installation, especially within tight spaces. In addition, the encoder has an easily accessible laser-marked QR code that provides direct access to the operating instructions.
