Introduction

This Encoder adapter is especially designed for DFRobot 12V DC Motors. This adapter comprises an external pull-up resistor, which raises the output voltage when the transistor is turned off. This board has two build-in pull-up resistors.

Encoder Sample Code

/*
Pay attention to the interrupt pin,please check which microcontroller you use.

*/

//The sample code for driving one way motor encoder
const byte encoder0pinA = 2;//A pin -> the interrupt pin 2
const byte encoder0pinB = 4;//B pin -> the digital pin 4
byte encoder0PinALast;
int duration;//the number of the pulses
boolean Direction;//the rotation direction


void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(57600);//Initialize the serial port
  EncoderInit();//Initialize the module
}

void loop()
{
  Serial.print("Pulse:");
  Serial.println(duration);
  duration = 0;
  delay(100);
}

void EncoderInit()
{
  Direction = true;//default -> Forward
  pinMode(encoder0pinB,INPUT);
  attachInterrupt(0, wheelSpeed, CHANGE);//int.0
}
