Hi there

I found this in an old printer..


I know that it counts every little line on the transparent disc, but what is it called, and does anyone know where i can read about how to use it??

Thanks in advance
Mads

Can't tell.  The pop-up ads kept getting in the way when I try to zoom in.

Please post some more and more detailed pictures. You can try looking up the text on the side in combination with 'rotary encoder' on google.

Very handy, thanks!

I pulled apart an epson and have a few encoders from it that I haven't attempted to use yet.
