Hi there, thanks for your answer. Several other people have picked up on that too, I overlooked that as the encoders I was browsing didn't have anywhere near that precision, but it's good to know for future that these products do exist.
Hi there, thanks for your comment. Several other users too have commented about these encoders, so it seems like I missed a trick here, but good to know. I'll definitely look up those particular units as that's a very useful piece of kit. The other issue of the potentiometers is that they produce minorly fluctuating output values, only to a minor degree, but not ideal. Thanks
Thank you, thanks for your comment, that's an interesting suggestion. Being able to reduce the calculation error would be a very useful thing, I'll definitely order one of those and at some point run some bench tests to confirm what difference in output values may be seen. Cheers!
