High resolution stainless steel encoders up to 30 bits

January 19, 2017 // By Julien Happich
With a high resolution of 18 bits (AFS60 Inox) or 30 bits (AFM60 Inox) and a large selection of programmable parameters, the AFS60 absolute singleturn encoder and the AFM60 absolute multiturn encoder from SICK can be used in applications with harsh ambient conditions and strict requirements regarding resistance to aggressive media such as cleaning agents or salt.

The encoders are equipped with the SSI interface; the AFM60 Inox is also available with combined SSI + incremental and SSI + sin/cos interfaces. Both encoders can be programmed via the PGT-08-S PC-based programming device or the PGT-10-Pro hand-held programming device.

The DFS60 Inox is a high-resolution incremental encoder with a diameter of 60mm in stainless-steel design. It offers a large range of mechanical and electrical interfaces and can be programmed by the customer if desired. The rugged mechanical design, the wide temperature range as well as IP 67 enclosure rating make the DFS60 Inox the ideal encoder for applications in harsh ambient conditions.
