  • Left/Right rotary output pulse, each circle with 20 pulse
  • Built in 10k resistor
  • Cycles per revolution (CPR): 20
SKU: 5353 Category: Tag:

By rotating the rotary encoder can be counted in the positive direction and the reverse direction during rotation of the output pulse frequency, unlike rotary potentiometer counter, which Species rotation counts are not limited. With the buttons on the rotary encoder can be reset to its initial state, that starts counting from 0. The output of incremental rotor encoders provides information about motion of shaft, which is typically further processed in processor/controllers into information such as speed, distance and position.
