Re: Eletronic Hand Wheel Manual Pulse Encoder Generator

These are designed for CNC and positioning control systems, where they want to set to a specific value with no overshoot.  They have a very heavy detent at each step, and basically do not spin very well.  I have not taken one apart to see if the detent can be removed.  If you want something that you can spin, you would probably want one of the small optical encoders such as  <
.  With a large know would spin very well.  You would probably want to
use an interrupt driven version of Rotary library to get full benefit.
