One of the challenges for the FCU is finding the encoders. I searched forums and googled a lot, and I have some ideas, but would like to check with the experts here. So some questions below:
- Finding encoders with push only is easy and cheap, but for push/pull, I seem only to find a few vendors and prices are in the range of 70 € each. Anybody here with some buying tips, partnumbers, vendors?
- Has anybody ever "compromised" to use only push? By pushing you could "toggle" between managed and selected mode. It's not an accurate simulation, I know, but it differs a few 100 €. (I'm afraid that some hard core simmers will feel terrified now )
- Has anybody information on how many steps per complete rotation these encoders should have? Is this 36, 24, ...? I think I once read somewhere that it is 20?
- Has anybody a solution for the altitude selector knob, which needs an additional ring to select between 100 / 1000?
All feedback is very appreciated! Thanks a lot!
