Using the tymkrs “Turn Me” with an Arduino

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Brooke @ 11:24 pm

Here is a quick write up on how to use the tymkrs “Turn Me” rotary encoder.  This supports the “push down” feature of the tymkrs kit.

Fritzing Rotary Encoder Part: Rotary Encoder with Knob bth.fzpz

Fritzing Project: RotaryEncoderDemo.fzz

Arduino (1.5) project: RotaryEncoderDemo.ino


 /* Read Quadrature Encoder
  * Connect Encoder to Pins encoder0PinA, encoder0PinB, and +5V.
  * http://playground.arduino.cc/Main/RotaryEncoders
  * Sketch by max wolf / www.meso.net
  * v. 0.1 - very basic functions - mw 20061220
  * Sketch updated by Brooke Hedrick / www.millamilla.com
  * v. 0.2 - Added the "S" pin for encoders with push-down support - bth 09292013
  *        - Put a limit of 255 and 0 in place.  It rolls over automatically at the limits - bth 09292013
