    Hola Gonza.
    It is very complicated to use this encoder as a position sensor, for this project, of course.
    The code must be modified and, because this is an incremental encoder, it doesn't have a default position, like a potentiometer. So every time the controller is powered up, the antenna must perform a full turn, to discover its limits.
    So yeah, it's a very good device, but very hard to use with this project. It's not worth the effort. The precision you get from the potentiometers is more than enough.
    Send me an email, if you want to discuss more.

    Hello Irina,
    Thank you.
    I know what you mean. It's not that simple. The servo moves at a specific speed, and this can't be changed.
    We can do a little trick instead. We move the motor only a few degrees then add a little delay, and so on until it reaches the desired position.
    Give me an email, if you need more help.
    Salutări,
    Viorel
