Thses look like great encoders for using on robots.

Here is some information I found on the AMT ecoders if you haven't seen this already

http://dkc1.digikey.com/us/en/tod/CUI/AMTEncoders/AMTEncoders.html

I would recomend starting with the Encoder.lvproj example.

I can't tell from your question exactly where your confusion is so if the example doesn't help please post back.

Encoder.lvproj doesn't appear to be much help, as our team is not using DIO for the encoders, but instead we are using Analog.

Maybe if you explain more what you plan to use the rotary encoder for and why you think analog is the correct way to process the signals we could help you further.

ElectroMancer, The datasheet http://www.cui.com/product/resource/amt10x.pdf shows that this is a digital encoder. I am not sure where you get that this will go into the Analog.

The connector has B, 5V, A, X, G and T on the -102. In LabVIEW, Select Help > Find Examples

When the NI Example finder comes up, select FRC Robotics > Sensors > Encoder .lvproj. Open the Encoder.vi under the RT CompactRIO Target. it shows ho to wire the encoder and the Block diagram has all of the pieces to get it operational.
