    Gray Type Rotary Encoder from Farnell / Maplin

    Hi all,

    Have been looking into using the gray type rotary encoder from the opencockpits store: http://www.opencockpits.com/catalog/encoder-p-100.html

    Would like to know if anyone knows of a retailer in the UK that sells these encoders or ones of a similar spec that will work with the master card from opencockpits. Can't quite justify the shipping costs from spain for a simple trial

    I believe the CTS Type 288 is the one I need. It needs to have 1/4 CYCLE PER DETENT and 16 DETENTS/REVOLUTION. A good site explaining the spec is:

    Happy building and thanks in advance,
    Marcus

    hello marcus...........
    leo bodnar uses these encoders with his BU0836X cards (i use them as well).
    he keeps stock of the plain CTS288 (without the push to make switch).
    have a look at www.leobodnar.com
    you'll see them at the bottom of the BU0836, BU0836A and BU0836X card pages.
    hope that helped you out.
    good luck and regards ... ian

    Re: Gray Type Rotary Encoder from Farnell / Maplin

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for pointing me to that source, didn't know that leo also stocked the encoders

    One slight niggle though, the encoders I need must be two bit grey type. The part numbers on leo's site suggest it is a 2 bit binary. However, there appears to be no 2 bit grey code available on the cts type 288??

    Regards,
    Marcus

    I use these:

    I'm pretty certain that this is what Ian uses/sends me, they works very well with leo bodnar's cards.

    Hi Claus
    Have a look here,the short of it is that the Elma encoder Does not work with the Master card but will via the Encoders 2 card if the the pic code is modified.You just have to get another pic and load the code in this thread.
    Here is the link.

    Hi Iwik

    Thanks.
    I have some spare inputs on my BU0836 card, so that may be the solution, for reading the encoder.

    Hi,
    Yes i agree,Leo board is an economical reader of encoders even though it might have some drawbacks ie speed.I find it to be ok for my uses.

    Hi Marcus,
    Sorry, I did not update the inventory - I have just received another batch of them. So they are available again.
    They are what you call quarter cycle. Elma E37 are half cycle type.
    Cheers
    Leo
