The 411 with RJS.
Question: What are Encoders?
An encoder can be referred to as:
- software programme to transfer information
- or PCB electro-mechanical component that is used for control.
RJS Electronics supplies a range of PCB, Encoders which are designed to control factors within an electronics device through rotation and push-button selection.
The rotary mechanism will either increase or decrease the operation.
Let us give you a short and sweet 411 about the key features of our PCB Encoders.
Pots, Knobs & Encoders
See our range of Encoders, listed under Pots, Knobs & Encoders under the PCB side on the navigation menu.
PCB or Panel Mount?
A PCB Encoders switches can be directly mounted (Printed Circuit Board). Surface mount PCB encoder switches (SMD/SMT) are designed to sit flat, directly on top of a PCB. Through-hole or ‘thru-hole’ PCB encoder switches are inserted into a drilled hole on the printed circuit boards and soldered to pads on the opposite side. See our range of PCB switches here.
Panel Mount Encoder switches are inserted from below into a hole in a panel. Panel mount switches are designed to sit outside an enclosure. See our guide to panel-mount switch pins here. For our range of panel mount switches click here.
