EAGLE PART: Incremental encoder with switch

Posted on Monday, June 4th, 2012 in Eagle, library by DP

Rotary encoders are an easy way to add user input to a project, especially for stuff like menu selections. Turn the knob left and right, push down to select an option.

We’ve used encoders in several recent projects. One problem we had was that the knob overlapped another part. After a quick measurement with digital calipers, we added the knob boundary to the part footprint. No more overlap problems.

The encoder footprint, and more public domain do-whatever-you-want parts in our Eagle parts library.
