Linear Rotary Encoder
An original EC11 encoder by ALPS, featuring no detents, meaning that it's smooth in operation and you won't feel it "click" when you turn it. This makes the encoder ideal for scrolling and volume adjustment, where you won't need the pin point precision of a tactile encoder.
This encoder actuates thirty times on a full cycle, so one full twist will perform thirty actions.
The encoder also acts as a button, which you can assign in your keymap. The actuation force required is roughly 500 grams, so the button is best used for non-frequent actions.
This encoder is rated for 15,000 cycles and 20,000 button presses. Its part number is EC11E183440C.
The resolution of this encoder in QMK is 4, which is the default setting for encoders.
Multiple encoder types can be used on the same keyboard. The Kyria supports one encoder per half. You can set a specific resolution per encoder in firmware, allowing you to use both an Industrial Rotary Encoder and this encoder together.
