Need Help with Rotary Encoder B-106-23983

Postby Lion_Jayson » Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:47 pm

Hi, I'm currently doing a project using the rotary encoder to measure the angle it rotate for a robot arm, my main controller is Raspberry Pi 3 B+. I'm quite new with rotary encoder and I'm worried that i might damaged the encoder, so i may have a few question that i wanted to ask.

1. Is B106 Rotary encoder suitable for measuring angle?
2, How to make sure the encoder condition is okay?
3. Can i directly rotate the shaft on the encoder with hand?
4. In the datasheet did mention of the output requires a pull up, what if i didn't connect a pull-up and directly connect the output to the pin?
5. If i ignore and didn't connect the OUTZ, will it affect my output?
6. Is there any tutorial on Python coding on how to measure angle?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

1. Is B106 Rotary encoder suitable for measuring angle?
- Rotary encoder can be used to measure angle, but you need to do some calculation.
2, How to make sure the encoder condition is okay?
- can rotate the shaft by hand and see the waveform with oscilloscope.
3. Can i directly rotate the shaft on the encoder with hand?
- the shaft is freewheel and can be rotate by hand with minimum force.
4. In the datasheet did mention of the output requires a pull up, what if i didn't connect a pull-up and directly connect the output to the pin?
-please take note this is NPN open collector (only have LOW but no HIGH signal)
5. If i ignore and didn't connect the OUTZ, will it affect my output?
-not effect, Z will give 1 pulse for every complete circle.
6. Is there any tutorial on Python coding on how to measure angle?
- sorry we don't have tutorial how to measure angle using this encoder.
