2-Bit Encoder 580 Standard

2-Bit Encoder 580

The ddm hopt+schuler encoder 580, is an encoder with an exceptional tactile feedback, which is realized due to a strong intentional self-alignment from one lock position to the next. Thanks to its special dimensioning, axle wobble and play in the detent position are a thing of the past. This special feature is particularly evident when using a large control knob. As an option, the 580 encoders can be connected via a flexible cable.
