MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 14, 2013 — The DFS2X line of programmable incremental encoders from Sick Inc. are suitable for packaging, printing, roll-diameter sensing and general manufacturing applications requiring precise positional feedback or speed monitoring.
The 16-bit encoders offer shaft, blind-hollow and through-hollow versions in a 2-in. housing, and a shaft version in a 2.5-in. housing. Its metal design is shock- and vibration-resistant, allowing for use in harsh environments. Programmable options allow users to configure the resolution, zero-pulse phase and other settings on a single encoder.
The devices can also provide speed and direction input to bar-code and 3-D camera systems.
