I search in ebay and hobbytronic for encoders, below are the one I found

Encoders which one do you advice me to buy?


Designing & building electrical circuits for over 25 years.  Screw Shield for Mega/Due/Uno,  Bobuino with ATMega1284P, & other '328P & '1284P creations & offerings at  my website.


The ebay units, each unit will give you speed type readings, as in pulses per time, but not direction , so it is not an encoder, it is a chopper or interrupter unit.
The HT is a quadrature encoder, each unit will give speed, and direction if you use both of the outputs. This is what is special about a quadrature encoder.

So it depends if you want speed, or speed and direction detection.

Hope this helps.
