Description: There are lots of trimpots out there. Some are very large, some so small they require a screwdriver. Here at SparkFun, we just needed a simple one that worked. This 10K trimmable potentiometer has a small knob built right in and it’s breadboard friendly to boot! Perfect for your next LCD contrast adjuster, opamp setting, or volume level. This model # is TSR-3386U within the datasheet.
Based on 4 ratings:
For a contrast control for an LCD, time or duty cycle adjustment for a simple 555 circuit, or giving a quick analog value to a digitizer like the analog inputs on an Arduino, this is quick, compact, and easy to use. Just plug it in to your breadboard and twiddle to your heart’s content, no tools needed. The knob is removable if you like.
Nice size for the fairly fat fingered person.. turns smoothly and functions well.. Breadboard friendly.You have the option of hand turning or using a flathead screwdriver. Will buy again and again
Fantastic for bread boarding! Comes with a knob which i have yet to find elsewhere, great for me with my fat fingers and lack of computer sized screwdrivers! Be careful when you turn it, too fast and you will break the leads!!! But as long as you are delicate with this its great!
Excellent product, and within acceptable tolerances. Glad you sent the Review Inquiry. It reminds me I need four more!
So nice not to dig for a micro-screwdriver when I need to adjust this sucker!
