  • I’m having a hard time figuring out how to wire the shield wire. It says “Shield: GND” on the rotary encoder. But it’s very confusing because the blue wire is “0V(Common)”, which is what I connect the negative terminal of the power source to (I think). And the negative side is usually called “ground” right? So, Why is the shield called ground? And what do I connect that to? I’m planning to use an arduino mega with the encoder.

No public wish lists :(
