Rotary encoders are used similarly to potentiometers. They’re different from potentiometers in that an encoder has full rotation without limits. They output grey code so that you can tell how much and in which direction the encoder has been turned.

Description

Rotary encoders are used similarly to potentiometers. They’re different from potentiometers in that an encoder has full rotation without limits. They output grey code so that you can tell how much and in which direction the encoder has been turned.

This encoder is especially cool because it has a red/green LED built in, as well as a push-button. Look below for the clear knob that goes with this potentiometer.
