Rotary encoders enable intuitive user interfaces thanks to their nice 'click' when you reach a new increment. Some also have LEDs and switches!

  2. Rotary Encoder Breakout - Illuminated (RG/RGB)
    Rating:
    100% of 100
    SKU: BOB-11722 Brand: Sparkfun Guides (1)
    This is a clever little breakout board for both the RGB and R/G illuminated rotary encoders. On one side, it breaks out all of the RGB pins to standard, breadboard friendly, 0.1" headers. Turn it over and it has a footprint for the R/G version! Simply solder an encoder down to the board and you’re ready to add illuminated input to your next project.

    Rating:
    100% of 100
    SKU: COM-15141 Brand: Sparkfun Guides (1)

  8. Rotary Encoder - 1024 P/R (Quadrature)
    Rating:
    100% of 100
    SKU: COM-11102 Brand: Sparkfun
    This 1024 pulse per rotation rotary encoder outputs gray code which you can interpret using a microcontroller and find out which direction the shaft is turning and by how much. This allows you to add feedback to motor control systems. Encoders of this kind are often used in balancing robots and dead reckoning navigation but it could also be used as a very precise input knob.

  9. Rotary Encoder
    Rating:
    80% of 100
    SKU: COM-09117 Brand: Sparkfun
    This is a 12-step rotary encoder with a nice ‘clicking’ feel. It’s breadboard friendly, and has a pretty handy select switch (by pushing in on the knob). The encoder is different from a potentiometer in that an encoder has full rotation without limits. The unit outputs gray code so that you can tell how much and in which direction the encoder has been turned.

    Rating:
    100% of 100
    SKU: ADA4991 Brand: Adafruit
    Rotary encoders are soooo much fun! Twist em this way, then twist them that way. Unlike potentiometers, they go all the way around, and often have little detents for tactile feedback. But, if you've ever tried to add encoders to your project you know that they're a real challenge to use: timers, interrupts, debouncing...
