Simple Motor Optical Encoder: Hardware

Jump To:
Build The Circuit
           Now we'll look at building up the circuit for the simple motor optical encoder. Just follow the schematic exactly and you shouldn't have any issues. When you're done your breadboard circuit should probably look something like mine:

·Here I have a 12v battery pack and the circuit as seen in the schematic.

·A back view of the completed circuit.

·Here is a quick top shot of the circuit as well.

·Now we connect to L298 to the motor and wirewrap the IR detector circuit power supply and output to the PIC.

·The completed and 'ready to go' circuit.
