    • Can be used as an accurate human input device.
    • Connects directly to a computer’s USB port.

    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

    The 1057 no longer comes with cables, if you need the associated cables you may find them below:

    Mini-USB Cable 180cm 24 AWG

    HighSpeed Encoder Cable
