Simple rotary / rotation encoder

I have made a simple solution for a “rotation” sensor, to sense wich way a dial is spun, and how fast.
Using a DC motor connected between the 3.3V output on the Arduino board and the analog input.
Read the details here, and do comment on it, if you have any considerations :slight_smile:

Should be in the exhibition section actually.

Yes very nice.

Did you know that by applying a resistive load on and off you could also generate some force feedback?

Force feedback with a resistor : Thats a great idea!

  • I got to think about posting at the exhibition group just a little to late, and then I was afraid to cross-post.

and then I was afraid to cross-post.

Go on we will forgive you.
