SICK USA, Minneapolis, MN, launches the DFS2X line of programmable high-resolution incremental encoders. The 16-bit encoders have a compact, rugged design and a metal code disc for a variety of applications. The encoders are available as shaft, blind hollow, and through hollow versions in a 2 in. housing. A 2.5 in. housing is also available. The IP 65-rated metal design is resistant to shock and vibration for use in harsh environments. The encoders are used for packaging, printing, roll diameter sensing, and general manufacturing applications that require precise positional feedback or speed monitoring.
