DIY knobster issues/questions

#1 Post by brlowe » Fri Feb 05, 2021 4:54 am

I built and finished my knobster a week or 2 ago. At first test I thought all was good but I was wrong.
When I use it I noticed the knobs on the screen turn the opposite direction from what I’m turning and the push button on center knob is not working.
I checked all my connections and they look right.
Can I swap some of the connections to get it working right?

To swap direction you can swap the A and B terminals of the encoder. The push button is the same as a normal button it needs one side connected to the prescribed button pin on the Arduino and it’s other side needs connecting to gnd. Some encoders share a single common gnd some have separate gnd’s. Make sure whatever you have that all gnd’s are connected together and returned back to the Arduino gnd.
