Part 9: Servo Motor

In this lesson we learn how to use a rotary encoder knob. Then we learn how to use it to control position of a servo motor (97-2) . In this lesson (97-3) we also display the position of servo motor on LCD screen using Arduino. This code will work with all Arduino board.
This code is just demonstrating rotary encoder and detecting pushin the switch built-in the encoder.

 *  Lesson 97-1: Rotary Encoder with switch 
 *  This code deteccts rotation of the encoder knob
 *  and also detects when it is pushed

const int SW_PIN = 4;
const int PIN_A =2;
const int PIN_B =3;

#include <Encoder.h>

// Change these two numbers to the pins connected to your encoder.
//   Best Performance: both pins have interrupt capability
//   Good Performance: only the first pin has interrupt capability
//   Low Performance:  neither pin has interrupt capability
Encoder myEnc(PIN_A, PIN_B);
//   avoid using pins with LEDs attached

void setup() {
  pinMode(SW_PIN, INPUT);
  Serial.println("Basic Encoder Test:");

long oldPosition  = -999;

  if (newPosition != oldPosition) {
    oldPosition = newPosition;

  if( digitalRead(SW_PIN) == LOW)
   Serial.println("Switch Pressed");
