Debounce Rotary Encoder

#1 Post by burschid1 »

I have Problems with the Rotary Encoder.
How, can I eleminate debounce at my rotary encoder. When I turn the rotary encoder, it always skips numbers.

Example for the Frequence:
127.050 - 127.055 - 127.065 - 127.080 - 127.085 ....
(each one click)

Thanks Chris

Sounds more like you haven't specified the correct number of detents per pulse.

The debounce delay can be altered from the default value by using the optional debounce argument in the dial_add() but as Ralph posted you need the detents per pulse set correctly too. See the wiki for details.

I tried to find this in the Wiki but cannot find where or how I can change the detents per pulse setting. This page (https://siminnovations.com/wiki/index.p ... n_tutorial) mentions "Rotary encoders come in different number of detents, this means the number of pulses per step/click. If your rotary encoder gives too many callbacks per step/click, try a different type setting.", but does not explain how to do it.

I would appreciate any help with this. This is not for Knobster which apparently has a setting. I am using Arduino Mega for custom panels, and rotary knob response is erratic.
