SICK encoders and inclination sensors

Tuesday, 23 May, 2017 | Supplied by: SICK Pty Ltd


Encoders from SICK monitor and secure motion sequences and are designed to ensure precise and efficient processes. They detect the exact speed, revolution, path or angle of a movement and deliver the result to the process control or the cloud in data that can be used for further calculations.

The AFS60 Inox has a high resolution of 18 bits and the AFM60 Inox has 30 bits, along with a large selection of programmable parameters. With features such as high resolution, high IP enclosure rating and stainless steel housing, they can be used in applications with harsh ambient conditions and strict requirements regarding resistance to aggressive media such as cleaning agents or salt.

The encoders are equipped with the SSI interface; the AFM60 Inox is also available with combined SSI + incremental and SSI + sin/cos interfaces. Both encoders can be programmed via the PGT-08-S PC-based programming device or the PGT-10-Pro handheld programming device.

The DFS60 Inox is a high-resolution incremental encoder with a diameter of 60 mm in stainless steel design. It offers a range of mechanical and electrical interfaces and can be programmed by the user if desired. The rugged mechanical design, the wide temperature range as well as an IP67 enclosure rating make the DFS60 Inox suitable for applications in harsh ambient conditions. There is a range of options for programming the electrical parameters, such as the output signal level, the number of pulses per revolution and the zero pulse width.

Both encoders are suitable for the use in the food and beverage industry, packaging machines, medical technology and outdoor applications in port and offshore plants.

The SICK encoder app supports the user with an interactive encoder selection tool. The tool lists all of the details about the various products, including ordering information, sketches, product information and CAD files. The integrated barcode reader can be used to call up app product information.
