Rotary encoder module KY040

The KY040 360 Degree rotary encoder is a rotary input device for stepper and servo motor control. You could also use it to control devices like digital potentiometers. It is an incremental electro-mechanical device that converts the angular position or motion of a shaft or axle to digital code. The output of incremental encoders provides information about the motion of the shaft, which is typically further processed in processor / controllers into information such as speed, distance, and position.
