Slim and compact incremental encoder that fits many applications

The DLS40 incremental encoder is a reliable solution for measuring rotational speed and position. It has several unique features that redefine the way encoders work. The concept of a flange with integrated housing enables a slim, compact, and cost-efficient design. This allows easier installation, especially within tight spaces. In addition, the encoder has an easily accessible laser-marked QR code that provides direct access to the operating instructions.
