Product Description

The PhidgetEncoder HighSpeed connects to any typical two-bit optical encoder and can return up to 500,000 counts per second. Specifically it reads a standard incremental non-differential TTL encoder.

The 1057 can be used to measure shaft speed or as a very accurate human input device. If you just need a simple human input device have a look at the 1052 PhidgetEncoder.

With it you can:

  • Detect changes in incremental position
  • Easily track changes with respect to time

Comes packaged with:

  • A 180cm Mini-USB cable
  • A 50cm 5-Wire Encoder Cable
  • A mounting hardware kit (4 nuts and bolts, 4 plastic spacers)
