Post Shaft encoder wiring - 2 wire encoder
Hello Forumers - I have a 12VDC motor with "built-in" encoder. The motor has a 2 wire connection, and runs both directions fine.
The encoder also has a 2 wire connection, but I have no idea how to wire it. It probably requires some external circuit, but the closest example found uses a 3 wire connection to the encoder. I have even tried using the case as ground to make a "3rd" connection. The motor didn't come with any schematics or specifications. Searches have drawn a blank - so maybe someone here can help.
The motor and encoder are to be operated by an Arduino.
(pics attached - encoder cap prised apart from motor body)
