Product Description

I2CEncoder V2 Connect multiple encoder on I2C bus

This project has been successfully founded on KickStarter!

Check out also the MickMake and EEVblog videos!

What is it?

This is an upgraded version of our previous project I2C Encoder

The I2C Encoder is a tiny board that you can read a mechanical rotary encoder on the I2C bus. The I2C Encoder V2 supports various type of rotary encoder with one footprint:

  • Standard mechanical encoder

  • Illuminated RGB encoder

  • Clickable rotary encoder

  • With and without dent

There are also 3 configurable GPIOs that are organized with the same footprint of RGB LED. You can use them as PWM, I/O or ADC. Last but not least, it has also 256bytes of EEPROM.


Features

  • I2C bus working up to 400kHz,

  • Possibility to add the pull-up resistors on the I2C bus.

  • Possibility to customize the I2C address by soldering the 7 SMD jumpers

  • It supports the standard rotary encoder and the RGB encoder

  • Open-drain Interrupt output pin, so no need to  continuously poll the devices

  • With the castellated holes it is possible to connect  several boards on the 4 sides

  • 5 pin header 2.54mm pitch on the left and right side, also the JST-XH fit

  • 3 General Purpose pins. (GP pins)

  • 256byte of internal EEPROM divided into 2 banks of 128 byte

  • Voltage range is 2.5V to 5V

  • Maximum A/B signal frequency: 100Hz (Tested)

  • Dimension of 25x25mm or 0.98x0.98in

  • Open source firmware

Details

This new version is powered by the PIC16F18345. Respect to the MCU on the first version, it has more GPIO and the EEPROM memory. The new design of the board support both the standard encoders and the illuminated RGB encoders. Moreover, there are the castellated holes on all the 4 sides of the board, in this way will be possible to connect multiple boards by soldering them like a matrix.

There is the possibility to solder the pull-up resistors on the I2C bus. The support footprint are 0805, 0603 and 0402 while the value can be from 10k to 2.2k.

The I2C Encoder V2 can be used in two different scenarios:

  • With a standard rotary encoder. Plus you can add an      external RGB LED, or you can use the 3 GPIOs

  • With an illuminated RGB rotary encoder. Plus you can      use 2 GPIOs.

Reading the encoder is a very easy task.

There are 4 registers:

  • CVAL: Current value of the Encoder.This value      changes every time the encoder rotates.

  • CMAX: Maximum value that CVAL can reach

  • CMIN: Minimum value that CVAL can reach

  • ISTEP: How much the CVAL has to increment at each      and every encoder step.

These 4 registers can be 32bit signed int, or as float numbers IEEE 754.


LEDs

The I2C Encoder has also the possibility to control LEDs. The LEDs are controlled by an 8bit PWM.


GPIOs

There are also 3 configurable GPIOs organized with the same footprint of an RGB LED. They are called GP1, GP2, and GP3. But in case you are using the RGB encoder, the configurable GPIOs are only 2: GP1 and GP2.

Possible configuration:

  • PWM: In this way, you can add an RGB LED

  • Analog: The pins are connected to the internal ADC      of the PIC. In this way, you can add sensors or potentiometer according to      your project needs

  • Output: You can use the pins as standard digital      output

  • Input: You can use the pins as standard digital      input. Plus you can configure also the interrupt on the edges

Encoders

There are 4 types of standard encoders. All have 20 pulses for rotations:

  • EC11 with handle 20mm long and 6mm diameter.

  • EC11 with handle 15mm long and 6mm diameter.

  • Bourns PEC11L-4120F-S0020 with handle 20mm      long and 6mm diameter.

  • Bourns PEC11L-4020F-S0020 no dent with      handle 20mm long and 6mm diameter.

There are also an illuminated RGB Encoder with the following characteristics:

  • 12mm transparent knurled shaft

  • 24 pulse

  • 0.5mm switch travel

Knobs

There are 2 type of knobs only for the RGB Encoder, not for the others encoder:

Complete transparent knob:

  • Skirt diameter: 20mm

  • Upper part diameter: 13mm

  • Total height: 19mm
