Product overview

• Compact edge switch body in black plastic housing, operated by thumb or finger
• Digits 0 to 9 appear in the aperture as the wheel is revolved
• Contact selection is based on BCD
• Several thumb switches can be clipped together
• Cheek pieces are required to be used to make the whole assembly 'snap in'
• Gold plated contacts on the PCB and wiper ensure reliable operation

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Round and Round Nifty little thing, perhaps underrated these rotary switches. O/P Read by an Arduino easily. Combine multiple drive outputs with diodes after the return lines for crude multiplexing. 2 of these can then be read with 6 lines, 4 with 8 lines. Why bother with a screen. Only -ve is less than stellar build quality.
