They feature four membrane pushbuttons and two LEDs for simple and intuitive setting of the number of lines, zero-pulse width, zero set, and output level on the encoders' electronic type identification plate.
In addition, these programming tools permit the cloning of settings once determined, allowing them to be transferred to as many encoders as desired. This can result in considerable labour savings when it comes to applications recurring regularly.
Suitable for use when performing maintenance, service and configuration work on a machine, these programming tools are particularly useful when used with the programmable incremental encoders of SICK's DFS60 product family.
Being freely programmable, these encoders offer significant benefits to integrators and final customers, such as:
- flexible setting
- quick availability; and
- minimal procurement and storage expenditure.
