Incremental encoders
DBS50 Core

Your Benefits

  • The universal cable connection enables the device to be used in tight spaces and provides cable routing flexibility
  • The different flanges allow the device to be mounted with servo clamps, or mounted at the front or rear side. This enables the device to be replaced without modifying the application
  • The high flexibility of the mechanical interface of the encoder and the available accessories allow for the use of a single design in many applications
  • The compact housing diameter saves valuable space
  • Long-term and reliable operation thanks to a high enclosure rating, temperature resistance and bearing lifetime


The DBS50 Core incremental encoder features impressively high mechanical flexibility, excellent technical properties, and a number of variations. The DBS50 Core has a 50 mm diameter face mount flange and an 8 mm diameter solid shaft. The housing, which measures 37 mm in diameter and less than 36 mm in length, is extremely compact and saves valuable installation space. The DBS50 Core offers a comprehensive range of mounting options thanks to its numerous mounting hole patterns, servo clamps, servo grooves, and triangular servo clamps. The encoder has compact dimensions and a universal cable connection that allows for cables to run in an axial or radial direction.
