Published:  07 February, 2018

SICK_Inox_encoders_with_PGT10_Pro.jpgSICK has announced it has launched stainless steel versions of its fully-programmable DFS60 incremental encoders and AFM60 and AFS60 absolute encoders making them available for duties in hygienic and corrosive environments for the first time. The company says the SICK DFS60 Inox, the AFM60 Inox and the AFS60 Inox programmable encoders feature a rugged stainless steel housing, flange and shaft and they deliver high-resolution, precision performance in aggressive environments such as chemical washdown, salt and high humidity atmospheres with an operating temperature range from -30°C to 85°C.

The SICK DFS60 Inox is a high-resolution, 16-bit incremental encoder, the AFS60 Inox absolute single turn encoder has a high resolution of 18 bits, while the AFM60 Inox absolute multi-turn encoder has an even higher resolution of 30 bits.
