The OE2 Series optical encoder is for tuning, menu scrolling, and selecting functions, and features a reduced overall part count. The OE2 exceeds MIL-STD 202 performance for humidity, vibration, and thermal and mechanical shocks. The encoder's positive tactile feedback targets it for use in critical applications such as medical control panels, automotive diagnostic equipment, industrial process/machinery controls, and in test and measurement equipment.
