So I have two encoders. These two encoders outputs are wired up to the same node where an arduino pin is reading the encoders. Unfortunately, I am not able to just turn off one encoder while the other encoder sends its outputs to that one arduino pin for some reason. I think this is due to the outputs of two different encoders being wired to the same node.
I then decided to get myself to the store and buy some transistors. I thought that I could simply send a signal to the to the transistor from the arduino and allow one output to pass through, then send another signal to the other transistor where the other output was hooked up and it would let that output signal pass through.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work.
Would you guys know of a solution using the transistors?
If not, i just thought of hooking up some diodes in series with the outputs then connecting to the input of the arduino.
Let me know.
