This 500 pulse per rotation rotary encoder outputs gray code which can be interpreted using a microcontroller and find out which direction the shaft is turning and by how much. This allows you to add feedback to motor control systems. Encoders of this kind are often used in balancing robots and dead reckoning navigation but it could also be used as a very precise input knob. The encoder comes with a set screw coupler.
