- Connects to any typical two-bit optical encoder.
- Returns up to 500,000 counts per second.
- Can be used as an accurate human input device.
- Connects directly to a computer’s USB port.
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
With it you can:
- Detect changes in incremental position
- Easily track changes with respect to time
The 1057 no longer comes with cables, if you need the associated cables you may find them below:
