Single Turning Control Potentiometer Design Guide

STP.DesignerGuide
Selecting a Single Turn Potentiometer
  • Determine the length of the stroke to be measured, power rating and
    resistance value.
  • Determine any size limitations.
  • Select a conductive plastic element for long life and infinite resolution.
  • Select a wirewound element for stability and better linearity.
  • Determine how the shaft will be connected to your device.
  • Use the icons below to find a model ideally designed to fit your application.
