Double Shaft Encoder?

Recommended Posts

Is there anything like an encoder with 2 concentric shafts? How does boeing make that MCP rotary switch with an inner ring and an outer concentric knob for the HDG and bank limiter?

I had one on my online cart been called EC11EEB24C03 (from ALPS), I haven't got one yet, but seems it's more like one on radio tuning panel than for HDG/BANK one, as the bank limiter on real thing are some heavy detent.

Dual encoder. Or there is an option for a dual encoder with a switch. Good for Airbus.

ELMA E37. Reasonably heavy detentes, lifetime up to 1 million cycles. Easily available while a bit more expensive than ALPS; but worth it.
