    Description

    AMCI DC60 Absolute Analog Multi-turn Rotary Shaft Encoder

    The DC60 DuraCoder is a new line of heavy-duty absolute analog multi-turn rotary shaft encoders, offering an analog current or analog voltage output over multiple turns.

    Units can be ordered with a full scale output over any number of turns between 1 and 1,024.  The analog output has 16 bit resolution regardless of the number of turns encoded.

    Built on DuraCoder's foundation of outstanding durability and value, the DC60 was originally designed for outdoor process control applications. Features like an IP67 rated aluminum housing and resolver-based sensing technology contribute to the DuraCoder's fail-safe reliability, making it the perfect choice for hydroelectric, water treatment, or water purification facilities.

    When customers demand reliable absolute analog multi-turn rotary shaft encoder performance in an environment of continuous mechanical shock and vibrations, and exposure to air and liquid-borne contaminants, the choice is easy - DuraCoder.
