Incremental encoders
DBS60 Core

Your Benefits

  • Diverse installation options thanks to different flange and shaft versions as well as flange and stator couplings with different assembly hole patterns
  • Hollow shaft clamp on the rear housing facilitates mounting
  • Various connection types enable flexible cabling
  • Compact housing dimensions save valuable space
  • The encoder is protected from high shaft temperatures and currents due to the insulated hollow shaft
  • Rugged design with large bearing distance allows high shaft loads and a longer service life
  • Only a few product variants due to electrical interfaces with a large voltage range, which reduces storage costs


The DBS60 Core is a rugged incremental encoder with a diameter of 58 mm and a compact mounting depth. The portfolio includes solid shaft models with face mount flange and servo flange as well as hollow shaft designs (blind/through hollow shaft) for shafts up to a size of 5/8 inches (15.875 mm). The hollow shafts are available with shaft insulation and with a clamp on the rear housing on request. In addition to the standard interfaces for TTL and HTL, the DBS60 Core also offers two universal interfaces with a large voltage range which unites the 5 V TTL and 24 V HTL as well as 5 V TTL and 24 V TTL in one version. Due to its high enclosure rating, rugged design and a resolution of up to 10,000 pulses, the DBS60 Core is the ideal product for standard use in various industries.
