A few days ago I received the gift of a broken HP InkJet printer. Naturally I stripped it down and robbed as many interesting parts as I could.
One part (or module) that caught my eye was a small motor and attached rotary encoder. The encoder itself is a 6 pin model marked Agilent 9966. Having searched online the only Agilent rotary encoders I can find datasheets for are the 9000 and 9100. These are only 5 pin models.
Does anyone have any experience with this particular part or knows where to dig up a datasheet? I could start plugging in pins at random and see what I get, but I suspect that path will lead to a fried part.
If you require more information, please ask away and I will do my best to provide.
