Product Features

Read one encoder at speeds of up to 500,000 quadrature cycles per second. Connects directly to USB.
Product Description

The PhidgetEncoder HighSpeed connects to any typical two-bit optical encoder and can return up to 2,000,000 pulses (that is, 500,000 full quadrature cycles) per second. Specifically it reads a standard incremental non-differential TTL encoder.

With it you can:

  • Detect changes in incremental position
  • Easily track changes with respect to time
