Optical Encoders with Phidget????
Has an gotten Optical encoders to work with Phidget?

Sure, I have. I have a shaft encoder wired up to the digital inputs on the 8/8/8.
They have a whole line of encoders over there.
If I turn it too fast the 8/8/8 will miss events. They have a product called an edivider which will slow down the reporting, but I haven't tested it yet.
Having FS2Phidget understand and track the digital inputs is a WHOLE different matter
Not sure Alan would want to be digging into that, but what do I know????

In particular I'm trying to use the Grayhill Series 62B Encoder. It unusual because it has push and pull off and on. I'll attaché the link of the schematic.

I just ordered a 62C kind of similar except it has a momentary. I'll let you know how it reacts when I get it. It should work though can't see why not. The encoders that come as a phidget is just on and off nothing special so you would be using a regular switch instead of a momentary one.

Dan, I'll be very interested how it works out for you.
Currently I've got it connected it to my EPIC, and it recognizes it. Now I need to be able to code it, and so it will allow me to make it do what I want it to
Phidget way, would be a lot easier, and whether I use it with EPIC or Phidget. In the future the option will be there for any new builders.
I look forward to your results.
