OK, I sort of bit the bullet and bought one of these to play with because I am only about 67.3% satisfied with the mechanical rotary encoders that I have so far:

http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/EM14A0D-C24-L064S/EM14A0D-C24-L064S-ND/954403

It has a single row of .05" pitch connectors.  Not going to work on breadboard and I don't want to solder it just yet.  What would be a non-invasive way to make a connection and play with this?   I would think I could shove a female/female header (put wires in the other end) or female to ribbon cable that can be broken out like they have at Adafruit (e.g. https://www.adafruit.com/products/825).  But everything I see is for .1" pitch.  Any ideas to do the same for .05" pitch?  Any hellp would be appreciated.
I have only come here seeking knowledge. Things they would not teach me of in college.

Search on "1.27 mm connector" at digikey.



I already tried that at Digikey, Jameco, Google, Adafruit, and I think one other.

I see some things that I might be able to work out with a little bit of soldering, for example:

http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/LPPB061NFFN-RC/S9008E-06-ND/1786364

I would rather solder to this than my rotary encoder, or possibly alternately bend the pins and use .1 female jumpers.  I guess I will go with an order of these unless someone else has a better idea.

Any better suggestions?

How many choices are there? Bend the pins and solder to the encoder directly,
or hook a connector to the encoder and solder to that.

I can think of others, especially ones that are breadboard friendly.   Like i was saying, I was hoping that there was something like the breakout cable at Adafruit but for .05" instead of .1".  That would be ideal.  

Bourns also ships the encoder with a cable, it's pictured in the datasheet (top pic) and described in the text.

Digikey doesn't stock the part number that includes the cable.  Just getting the equivalent of this cable would be ideal too.  Cable type #1 is 6" female to stripped/tinned leads (described under CABLE/CONNECTOR OPTION on page #2).

OK, I have it figured out.  What I really wanted was the factory cable but Digikey didn't stock it or even have it as a non-stocked part so I sort of gave up.  If Digikey doesn't have it, who does?

Well, Mouser actually does.

So I am just going with this.  Supposedly 12" long 0.050" connector at one end and stripped leads at the other.  Thanks for the help.
