Courtesy: SickSick’s DFS60S Pro incremental encoder for functional safety is designed for mobile and stationary applications that require safe motion monitoring. The DFS60S Pro incremental encoder is a certified safety product up to SIL2 (IEC 61508), SILCL2 (EN 62061), PL d (EN ISO 13849), Category 3 (EN ISO 13849). The DFS60S is designed to integrate safe motion into machine safety architecture by reducing the amount of work required for verification, validation and safety engineering. The DFS60S Pro also features IP 65 enclosure rating, wide temperature range, and wide set bearings for enhanced durability. Additional features include connection options for high levels of flexibility and straightforward implementation as well as a compact installation depth for compatibility with applications where installation space is limited.
