SICK has released the DKS 40 incremental encoder. It is designed for standard applications such as monitoring the rotation of rollers, drums and other axles.
Its housing is made of solid die-cast zinc and has a diameter of 50mm and a height of 42mm. Minidisc technology gives the DKS 40 extremely high immunity against impacts and vibrations. It is suitable for use in machine tools, textile, packaging or timber processing machines.
The DKS 40 is available with a clamping flange and 8mm full wave. It offers all common line numbers up to 2048 a revolution. There is a choice of electrical interface between open collector, TTL/RS 422 and HTL/push-pull. The connection cable is positioned in such a way that it is possible to lay the cable down in a radial or axial direction without any excessive bending.
