Safe, easy, flexible: Encoders for functional safety

Safe electrical and mechanical design, easy system implementation and flexible application possibilities. The DFS60S Pro is an incremental encoder for functional safety. It supports safety functions conforming to IEC 61800-5-2. The high enclosure rating, wide temperature range and generous ball bearing clearance are the key to enhanced durability. They make the DFS60S Pro the universal motion control sensor for stationary and mobile safety applications.
