  • D GregR is correct. This is a single output device that will not give you direction. You must have the A and B outputs that are 90 degrees out of phase to get direction. The pictured case even shows "Black :OUT A" as the only output signal. Sparkfun needs to update the description or get the correct product.

  • These are definitely quadrature encoders. You can multiply the counts by using edge detection. So you can increase the counts to a maximum of 48 counts easily.

No public wish lists :(
