Product description: Fermion 8421 vertical encoder module - 16-position - DFRobot DFR0721
8421verticalencodermodule manufactured by DFRobot. It has16possible positionsfrom 0 to F. Data from the Fermion 8421 sensor is read viadigitaloutputs that represent consecutive bits of the 8421 code (BCD). Unlike apotentiometer, the encoder does not need any additionalmemory, reference point or continuous counting function to work properly. The position can be read outat any time. Encoder is also characterized byincreased resistance to interferenceand reliability of transmitted data. The product finds versatile use in widely understood industrial systems, designed to control the status of individual devices.
Scheme of connecting the encoder toDFRduinoboard, which is equivalent to popular Arduino. The board is not included in the kit, you can buy it separately in our shop.
