I have a 400 PPR encoder that i have working with a ky-040 encoder node. Its the only node i have been able to get reliable readings from. But the only down side is when the encoder stops the CW/CCW direction output remains active. I’ve tried lots of things and now trying to find a way to use the counter to stop the outputs when stationary. any suggestions?
The background on what im doing is using an encoder to read the rotation direction only. I’m not interested in counting revolutions or angles. it rotates slow so cheaper encoders work with other nodes but miss the small movements.
the machine can eventually rotate indefinitely in any direction so a pot will not work.
