SICK DBS36 and DBS50 incremental encoders are designed with compact housings for applications with limited installation space. Their small size and low profile make them suitable for providing reliable speed feedback information in light duty applications requiring 100-2,500 pulses per revolution. A universal cable outlet is designed for use in tight spaces and makes flexible cable routing – in either the axial or radial direction – possible. The DBS encoders can also be used in dusty or humid environments due to their IP 65 enclosure rating. An operating temperature between -20° C and 85° C makes them suitable for outdoor use, and a wide variety of mounting brackets and couplings ensure quick installation on packaging, printing, textile and woodworking machines.
