Description: These are very thin variable potentiometers. By pressing down on various parts of the strip, the resistance linearly changes from 100Ohms to 10,000Ohms allowing the user to very accurately calculate the relative position on the strip. Can be used as an accurate positional indicator for CNC head positioning, variable user input (volume level input for example), straight user input (multiple button areas translate to given resistance levels), and many other applications.
Unit comes with adhesive backing. Connector is 0.1" spaced and bread board friendly.
Note: These potentiometers work great with a finger, or stylus. For premium repeatability, the wiper listed below is perfect for machine and object positioning.

Discovering all these neat products that we don’t get to play with in school. I intend to incorporate this under the chin (and running the length of the sock) of one of my wife’s dragons (embedded in the sculpey) in hopes of varying the current going to the mused wire embedded in the wings, therefore making them twitch when you scratch the sculpture. Unfortunately school does take most of my time… stay tuned?
