DST5H Series – SIL3 PLe Incremental Encoders

When an automation system requires a high degree of risk mitigation of failure modes, often times Functional Safety equipment can be a part of the solution. Sensata | BEI Sensors offers a wide range of Functional Safety encoders to fit almost any application or electrical interface requirement. Rated at SIL3 (PLe), these encoders allow safe operation in set-up, production, and maintenance modes, significantly reducing operational risks. All encoders have the option of a Digital HTL or TTL operation as an alternative to the Sine/Cosine outputs found on most Functional Safety encoders. This makes them a compatible replacement for existing encoders when migrating to a higher safety level of operation. The DST5H series incorporates a hollow shaft-style mounting that can accept shafts up to 14 mm in diameter. It is mounted with a stator coupling kit and a clamp to secure it to the shaft. The encoder body is 58mm in diameter.

Features

  • Usable up to SIL3 and Cat.4 / PLe according to IEC 61508 / EN ISO 13849
  • Suitable for safe motor feedback according to IEC 61800-5-2
