Rotary Angle  (Encoder) Sensor Module

Rotary Angle (Encoder) Sensor Module

LE 40.00


This rotary angle sensor is based on a potentiometer, rotary angle from 0 degree to 300 degree a linear change in value. The potentiometer module produces analog output between 0 and Vcc (5V DC with Arduino) on its D1 connector. The D2 connector is not used.  The resistance value is 10k ohms. It is simple to use and arduino/micro-controller compatible.

How Does it work?

  1. A potentiometer is a simple knob that provides a variable resistance. By turning the shaft of the potentiometer, we change the amount of resistance.  This gives us a different analog input depending on the angle of rotation. 

  2. When the shaft is turned all the way in one direction, there are 0 volts going to the pin, and we read 0. When the shaft is turned all the way in the other direction, there are 5 volts going to the pin.

  3. To measure the angle,  the sensor the housing is mounted to a fixed base, while the rotating shaft couples to rotating element.
