Encoder read by BARRAGAN

Demonstrates the use of an encoder with the Encoder library Prints the encoder value Encoder's PinA must be attached to External Interrupt pins. On Wiring v1 boards the external interrupts capable pins are: 0, 1, 2, 3, 36, 37, 38 and 39 On Wiring S board the external interrupts capable pins are: 2, 3 and 18

#include <Encoder.h> 
int val; 
Encoder myEncoder; 
void setup() { 
  // ataches the encoder to pins EI2 and pin 8
  // EI2 is pin 18 on Wiring S
  // EI2 is pin 2 on Wiring v1
  myEncoder.attach(EI2, 8); 
  myEncoder.write(0); // set the encoder position to 0
void loop() { 
  // Reads the position or angle of the encoder variable 
  val =;          // read position
  Serial.print("Encoder is at: "); // print the position
  delay(100); // wait 100ms for next reading
