Sick Stegmann's DFS 60 Incremental Encoders Recognized as a 2007 Product of the Year by Plant Engineering Readers


DAYTON, OH - SICK STEGMANN, INC.'s DFS 60 Incremental Encoders have been named a Plant Engineering magazine 2007 Product of the Year Silver award winner as voted on by Plant Engineering readers. DFS 60 are hollow shaft encoders that deliver from 1 to 65,536 ppr in an industry-standard 60mm housing - truly unrivaled resolution when compared with any encoder in its class. Typical 60mm encoders offer 1024 ppr, or up to 8192 ppr.

The DFS 60 is built on SICK STEGMANN's new "F" Technology, the heart of which is a unique nickel code disc that provides significantly more robust operation and tolerance to higher temperatures than conventional optical encoders that typically have a glass or plastic rotating disc. This makes them an ideal solution in heavy-duty industrial applications such as printing, textile, woodworking and packaging machines. DFS 60 encoders are IP65 rated and are available with a TTL or HTL interface.

SICK STEGMANN, INC. is a wholly owned subsidiary of SICK AG in Waldkirch, Germany. SICK|STEGMANN is a world leader in the design and manufacture of incremental, absolute and linear encoders, as well as motor feedback systems.
