Tell us about yourself!
I realized the project isnt done until I show the HTPC (home theatre pc) I built with the usb knob (right side of the picture) ... many thanks to Kris S. for the help. Now all I have to do is add some remote control feature and 2 liner OLED plus finishing paints.. :)
I made it. thanks for your patience Kris S.
I highlighted the 3 pins in encoder *pic 1terminals 1.ENA2.ENB3.GNDUI assumed #3 is the ground then connected it to the GND terminal in digispark. the #1 and #2 were connected to either to the VIN or 5V terminals in digispark. I also tried reversing. all it does however is turn the Main LED on and off as I turn the knob
yes it does have 3 pins... I dont think mine is a potentiometer... it doesnt act as a variable resistor when I tested it with an ohm meter. it does however act like an endless on off switch whenever I rotate the knob in any direction. it also turns the main LED of the digispark on and off when I turn the knob.also I noticed that it heats up a lot (blistering hot) when the encoder is plugged in to the digispark..
sorry, I realized instructables dont send notification for any responses. I JUST received my digispark from China and I have an infinite knob (pioneer XWZ 4286). Just like my initial question, I am not sure if the same code will work with my encoder since it is not a potentiometer.
hi does this work with "infinite turn knob" (does not have any start and end point) as well?
