Code Lock

Using a rotary encoder

Most code locks or electronic entry systems need a 10-way keypad to enter a code number sequence. This design performs the same function but takes a more circular route…Electronic lock or door entry mechanisms normally use a 10-way numeric keypad to enter the code sequence. Once the correct four-digit sequence is entered a relay is activated and this switches a door-opening device. A novel alternative to the keypad is a rotary encoder coupled with a left/right scrolling single character dot-matrix display to indicate direction of rotation and value of the encoder.
