Incremental Rotary Encoder.

This Incremental Rotary Encoder provides 16 pulses per revolution via 2-bit quadrature outputs. 3-pin SIP header provides easy breadboard connection. This encoder rotates continuously through 360 degrees and provides detent to hold position. Used with a pushbutton this encoder could provide a complete menu / input system for your microcontroller.

Key Features:

  • Low-cost input device (can replace multiple switches or potentiometers).
  • Less than 1" square fitting into even smaller enclosures.  
  • 100,000 life cycles for reliability and long life.  
  • 1/4" threaded shaft w/flatted end for knob, mounts in enclosure or on PCB.

Application Ideas:

  • Menu selection.
  • Digital volume/tone control.


  • Electrical Ratings: 250 mA @ 28 VDC (Max) / 1.5 mA @ 115 VAC (Max)*.
  • Interface: 2-bit quadrature (gray) code.
  • Dimensions: 0.925 x 1.020 x 1.093 in (23.50 x 25.91 x 27.76 mm).
  • Operating temp range: -40 to +185 °F (-40 to +85 °C).

NOTES: Please refer to the datasheet for additional information on electrical and mechanical specifications.
