The PhidgetEncoder is intended to be used as a human interface, not as a
device to measure shaft speed of motors or pulleys. If you are looking for
an encoder to measure shaft speed, have a look at the 1057 PhidgetEncoder
The PhidgetEncoder uses a two-bit continuous rotation mechanical encoder with
a built-in momentary-action pushbutton switch. It returns 80 counts for 360
degrees of rotation.
With it you can:
Detect changes in incremental and absolute position.
Easily track these changes with respect to time.
Comes Packaged with:
A 3016 - 120cm Custom USB Cable
A Hardware mounting kit (4 nuts and bolts (M3), 4 plastic spacers)
