Romi Encoder Pair Kit, 12 CPR, 3.5-18V
Add quadrature encoders to the mini plastic gearmotors on your Romi chassis with this kit that uses a magnetic disc and Hall effect sensors to provide 12 counts per revolution of the motor shaft. The sensors operate from 3.5 V to 18 V and provide digital outputs that can be connected directly to a microcontroller or other digital circuit.

The motor portion can be removed from the gearbox and rotated 180° to change whether the connector pins point up or down.
The motor can be removed from the gearbox even when the encoder is soldered to the motor.
The included low-profile headers are still long enough to work with our pre-crimped jumper wires.
A standard-length straight 0.1″ male header allows for compact cable connection.
The Romi Encoder can plug directly into the Motor Driver and Power Distribution Board for Romi Chassis.
