Recommendation for descent Quality Rotary Encoder?

#1 Post by phxflyer »

New to Airmanager, but years of experience with SIMVIM, TEENSY, Etc.

I'm trying to hookup a Rotary Encoder to Air Manager and everything seems to be working fine, except my latest batch of cheap encoders.

The encoders work, but often I have to put a little pressure on the knob to get it to work, when it works it works beautifully.

Anybody have a source or part number for a better quality encoder (single with PB, not dual)?

what do you mean ? are you talking about the push button function ????

ALL the encoders I have used have been the cheap aliexpress ones and I have NEVER had an issue with any. Yes, you need a positive push, byt that is what it is designed for.

More info may help ?
