Product Description

16mm rotary  potentiometer with metal shaft WH148 

16mm rotary carbon potentiometer is widely used in the world market.

This potentiometer has three pins, good in soldering with cables. It's a fairly standard linear taper  potentiometer, with a 18teeth metal knurled type shaft. It's smooth and easy to turn, but not so loose that it will shift on its own. We like this one because the legs with hole, you can soldering the pins with the cables,then you can put it into a breadboard or perfboard.

Rotary carbon potentiometers still have many applications for the Medical, Automotive and Measurement Equipment markets and many more.

This kind pins is special,it is horizontal type.

Q:Are you the manufacturer?

A:Yes!Perpetual making over 100 varieties of products, specializing in the production of carbon potentiometer, wire wound potentiometer, rotary encoder,rotary band switch and so on.

Q:How Does a Rotary Potentiometer Work?

A:Potentiometers work by varying the position of a sliding contact across a uniform resistance. In a potentiometer, the entire input voltage is applied across the whole length of the resistor, and the output voltage is the voltage drop between the fixed and sliding contact.

Q:What is a rotary potentiometer used for?

A:A rotary potentiometer is an adjustable electrical resistor that can be moved by means of a rotary motion. This allows control processes to be implemented in various electrical or electronic systems, for example for volume control in multimedia devices.

Q:How about your package?

A:Usually we packed in strong carton,if you have specail request,we also can packed by pallent.
