Description: An adjustable potentiometer can open up many interesting user interfaces. Turn the pot and the resistance changes. Connect VCC to an outer pin, GND to the other, and the center pin will have a voltage that varies from 0 to VCC depending on the rotation of the pot. Hook the center pin to an ADC on a microcontroller and get a variable input from the user!
This pot has a ¼" mounting diameter and has a 10K linear taper. Check the datasheet for dimensional drawings.
Based on 4 ratings:
Perfect replacement pots or for use in new projects. Well built and small enough for cramped project boxes. Nice smooth operation and at a reasonable cost.
Bought this to use with the LM317 and made an adjustable bench supply from an old ATX PSU. Movement is smooth, mounts easily, and the matching silver knob looks awesome on it.
and a really nice consistent friction. Screw threads are adequate, nothing super high quality.
