The encoders for the Micro metal gear motors look really good. They measure the turn of the motor shaft, not the final drive shaft so they are much more accurate. One problem I have is that the encoders page says they require the “extended back shaft version” of the motors. I can’t see anywhere to buy this version. Has anyone used these? do they work with the normal motors? If not how do I find these extended back shaft version? Can the shaft be extended after buying the motor.
I want to try the motor, but I especially want the encoder version so I don’t want to buy the wrong one.
Any help would be welcome
