The DKS 40 incremental encoder – the cost-cutter for monitoring rotations

Given its application and price segment, the DKS 40 offers unaccustomed quality. Its housing is made of solid die-cast zinc and is extremely compact – with a diameter of 50 mm and a height of 42 mm. Users thus save valuable installation space. Exploitation of the very successful mini-disc technology gives the DKS 40 extremely high immunity against impacts and vibrations. Whether in machine tools, textile, packaging or timber processing machines – conditions can be tough and space limited.

The DKS 40 is available with a clamping flange and 8 mm full wave. The device offers all common line numbers up to 2,048 per revolution. There is a choice of electrical interface between Open Collector, TTL/RS 422 and HTL/push-pull. The connection cable is positioned in such a way that it is possible to lay the cable down in a radial or axial direction without any excessive bending. With its great versatility, the DKS 40 sets a new standard in its class.
