Incremental encoders
DBS36 Core

The MultiFit Incremental Encoder

Your Benefits

  • The universal cable outlet allows for use in tight spaces and for flexible cabling
  • Face mount flange with various mounting hole patterns provides high flexibility when mounting in existing and new applications
  • Face mount flange with servo groove makes mounting with servo clamps possible
  • The universal stator coupling of the DBS36 Core allows for easy device replacement without adapting the application
  • Shafts in metric and US design enable worldwide use
  • 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
  • Long-term and reliable operation thanks to a high enclosure rating, temperature resistance and bearing lifetime


The MultiFit Incremental Encoder

The DBS36 Core incremental encoder features impressively high mechanical flexibility, excellent technical properties, and a number of variations. A blind hollow shaft with a shaft diameter of up to 8 mm and a face mount flange with 6 mm and 1/4" solid shaft are available. The design with face mount flange offers 2 different flanges with 6 different mounting hole patterns and a servo groove for mounting with servo clamps. The hollow shaft design has a universal stator coupling that can be used for multiple typical mounting hole circles. All models have compact dimensions and a universal cable outlet that allows for cables to run in an axial or radial direction.
