SICK DBS60 Inox incremental encoder - for the harshest working conditions-0

The combination of a complete stainless steel design and a rugged shaft seal make the DBS60 Inox incremental encoder resistant to harsh environmental conditions.

The SICK DBS60 Inox range includes encoders with two types of stainless steel housings:

  • 303/304 (V2A) with standard IP67 housing protection;
  • 316L (V4A) with IP69K housing protection.

SICK DBS60 Inox series encoders: IP67 and IP69K (DBS60I-W*) will be ideally suited for applications requiring high protection against aggressive media and cleaning agents.

The IP69K DBS60I-W* variant with its patented deflector shield, which protects the shaft seal, is an ideal product for high-pressure, warm-water washdown typical for environments in the food and beverage industry. In addition, the IP69K (DBS60I-W*) encoder version, thanks to its design, prevents the formation of bacteria on the housing, and the 316L (V4A) stainless steel encoder housing is corrosion-resistant.

Below is a video demonstrating the benefits of the IP69K (DBS60I-W *) encoder.
