Many have asked for a better way to solder the wires to a Rotary Encoder
Switch. DTA has been using the 2410 circuit board on our GPS panels with excellent results. So now we can offer you the same convience of soldering this small circuit board to a standard Rotary Encoder (with or without the normally open switch). The 2410 also supports a Dual Encoder Switch. Just by soldering the encoder switch to the 2410, you can easily and safely solder the interconnecting wires from the switch to a USB Adapter without worring about breaking the fragile terminals.
Measuring only: 20mm by 27mm - The 2420 is small but can save you some time and fustration.
The 2410 is compatible with the Encoder Switches seen Above
NOT Compatible with the 8mm Dual Rotary Encoder Switch.
