Re: No detent rotary encoder

Jack Purdum

One way is to search for optical rotary encoders. Generally, these use a light source (e.g., LED) and a perforated disk to create the pulse chain. I'm using a Clarostat  600-128 series encoder and it's smooth as silk. I found one at a hamfest for next to nothing, but new they're about $20. Optical encoders are almost always more expensive. I'm sure someone here can point to a source for less expensive encoders.

Subject: [BITX20] No detent rotary encoder


Anyone can give me some info where can I find a Rotary encoder with NO detent because in ebay I only found
rotary encoders WITH detent ( 20 /30 detent per rotation) and my uBitx encoder is broken.
