I bought two to go with rotary encoder - illuminated (red/green) Part ID: PPCOM-10596. The encoders will not fit a standard 0.1" perf-board so these are ideal - I fitted some berg header pins and use them on a solderless breadboard with my Arduino.
The breakouts can be used with either the red/geen or RGB encoder types (different pin-outs) and depending on which type you have you fit to it one side or the other - it's obvious when you see them. Simple!
This is a clever little breakout board for both the RGB and R/G illuminated rotary encoders. On one side, it breaks out all of the RGB pins to standard, breadboard friendly, 0.1" headers. Turn it over and it has a footprint for the R/G version! Simply solder an encoder down to the board and you’re ready to add illuminated input to your next project.
