With the Quadrature Encoder's two output channels you can measure both the position and direction of rotation of a VEX shaft. This will allow you to calculate the speed of the shaft, as well as the distance it has traveled; these are very useful measurements for autonomous programming. A Programming Kit is needed to change the program in the VEX Controller to use the Quadrature Encoder.

  • Measure Angular Travel.

  • Determine Rotational Direction.

  • Calculate Shaft Speed.

  • Calculate Distance Traveled.

  • Increase Navigational Control.

  • More Autonomous Functionality.
