I think this is the right place to post this but please point me in the right direction if im in the wrong place.
So a while ago I started asking around about trying to get hold of a PCB for on of Fairlght's LRE8x2CS boards. Sadly it seems fairlight isnt around but thank you to him for the inspiration. Id been meaning to get around to building a rotary encoder setup for a while but i didnt want to build a 2 PCB setup with a DIN DOUT and encoder / led ring setup. I read up on the OLRE but im not sure my SMD soldering is up to scratch. Anyhow so i thought id poke through Fairlights schematic and see if could understand some of the details and make use of his schematics to build something smaller and thought it might be useful to post here for a sense check. The schematic is 2x4 version of fairlights and it doesnt have the push button encoders like fairlight's version (mostly because i didnt have a 16mm push button encoder for eagle and to be honest im still learning the software!)
Im happy to share the eagle files with both the pcb and schematic files if anyone wants and it helps them to get up and running although my pcb has a slightly different spacing for encoders so i could easily work in mm. It should be able however to place 2 alongside one another and still be able to fit within a 19 inch 2U rack mount.
