Cheap encoder source?

  • Anyone know of a place to get encoders on the cheap? Rotary, no detent, incremental, mechanical would be ideal. I want 1000 ppr but I can be convinced that that is too much. Seems like everywhere I look it's about $80 apiece, which seems like too much.

  • usdigital.com have very high quality encoders. the prices are also a bit high, but they're worth it.

  • What about one of the cheap, basic ones like this: http://www.goldmine-elec-products.com/images/G16267B.jpg ? Except with better resolution than 24 ppr?
