    Thumbs up ALPS Dual Concentric Rotary Encoders

    Hi all,

    I have managed to source a small number of Alps Dual Concentric Rotary Encoders (with push switch) and will be putting them on Ebay in the next few days if anyone is interested. I will try and source a few more as I know these a difficult to find. Not sure about the price yet but it should be around 10 Euros + P&P each. I am also trying to source the dual knobs so if anyone knows where I can get them let me know.

    Once I have listed them on Ebay, I will put the link in this thread.

    Regards,
    John

    You can also get them at http://www.onlinecomponents.com/product/3575914/ for $7.80 each. They have 690 in stock.

    Hi Guys,

    Mike yes these are the ones.

    DaveC3, 10 Euros was just a guess. However, these are hard to get in Europe. Ordering from Onlinecomponent is OK, but they are killing us on the shipping to UK. Plus you have Customs Duty to pay on top of that which is why I have tried to source them in EU.

    I haven't confirmed the price in UK yet but I should find out this week.

    Regards,
    John

    OnlineComponents force international buyers to buy US$100-00. If you just want 5 encoders this is a problem. Then the freight charges is a killing just as BoeingNG mentioned. I guess if you are in the USA it is fine to buy from them.

    I bought 5 encoders from http://www.simparts.de for EUR20-00 each. They sell knobs for dual encoders.

    JackPilot,
    These are the same ones GoFlight uses, except these also have a button feature.

    I just bought 5 of them from Online Components. It was very reasonable considering I live in Hawaii. Very nice units.

    Thumbs down

    Hi all,

    Just a quick update.

    I had a meeting with the Pan Euro distributer of these encoders and there is a min order level of 700 units @ 4.35 GBP each. I also got a quote for up to 50 and they want 13.50 GBP each. So I suspect this is going to be a no go from these guys unless I order 700 (no chance of that)

    Regards,
    John

    Hmmm....maybe if someone in the US needed some they could order enough for some in the UK and then have the folks in the UK pay the post over the pond?

    Tomlin,

    You have given me an idea. I have 3 guys that work for me in the US so I will ask them if they will try and get some over via the internal mail.

    Good thinking. (not sure why I didn't think of that before to be honest. This cockpit project must be getting to me )

    Regards,
    John
