The documention for this encoder says that it gives 24 pulses per 360° rotation, which I interpreted to mean 24 resolvable positions, but after trying it I see that it has 24 detent positions, and between each detent is a full 4-step quadrature cycle, so there are actually 96 resolvable steps per rotation. This unit also includes a momentary switch which is closed when the button is pushed down. Takes a solid push to close the switch….
