    New Rotary Encoder Board available

    Hey All -

    I noticed today that desktopaviator.com released a new rotary encoder with analog inputs and digital switches. It looks especially promising to those like me with very limited electronics experience. Has anyone used this product yet?
    Best Regards,
    Daniel

    I was checking it out. I think the card from Leo Bodnar is better but this is a nice card from DA.

    I myself would go for the original Leo Bodner Board as I have found it's flexibility to be better than most!

    The support is excellent.

    Leo Bodner also designs a board that supports "load cells" than can be used to make very neat pedal assemblies, brakes etc., etc..

    Im seriously considering ordering the board from DA and was curious what others think of the Panasonic encoders that they have as well, or if I need to find a better encoder. I like how they are equipped with the push function, which is really handy for 'push to center' functions, etc.
