The PhidgetEncoder uses a typical 2-Bit mechanical encoder with built-in momentary
pushbutton switch. The part that comes with the Phidget Encoder is manufactured
by CTS Part # 290UAA5F201B1 (datasheet
and is available from www.Digikey.com Part # CT3010-ND.
If you decide that this encoder does not meet your requirements it is possible to
use other 2-Bit mechanical encoders. Since your new encoder won't have exactly the
same pin out you should use wire to connect your new encoder the appropriate pins
on the Phidget board.

Encoders and found that they can be used as replacements
