Reading motor speed using optical encoders. - john.tilghman@protonmail.com - 07-30-2020

I am trying to figure out how interface the AU to some optical encoders, can i just hook them together. Trying to read RPM from a motor.

The encoders are 3.3v and they have 3 connectors, pwr, gnd and signal.

I have been using AVR and Rpi's so this didn't seem like a big deal, I am unsure about how to go about this with the AU.

Thanks for any guidanceĀ on this,
JT
