Single Turn Conductive Plastic Potentiometers
At P3 America you’ll find an exhaustive range of single-turn conductive plastic potentiometers in a variety of sizes and measuring angles. Available in bushing mount (panel mount), servo mount (ball bearings) and hollow shaft (through shaft). These high-resolution pots are widely used in industrial applications such as industrial automation, mobile machinery, medical devices, control panels, robotics, and many other applications where precise input or feedback is required.
Primarily designed to function as a proportional voltage divider, conductive plastic potentiometers provide an absolute analog output. They are true ‘power on - power off’ sensors in that position reference is not lost due to loss of power.
Each potentiometer is manufactured in accordance with ISO9001 certification standards and meets or exceeds the standards for potentiometers in accordance with IEC 60393 and/or VRCI-P-100A.
Industrial Grade Precision
Precision potentiometers, in comparison to the lowest cost potentiometers, are characterized by tight mechanical and electrical tolerances, low noise and high repeatability. Conductive plastic potentiometers are further characterized by very high life cycles and essentially infinite resolution.
Customization of mechanical features, such as shaft length and diameter is not uncommon and welcome. Customization of the electrical measuring angle is also possible to better match the application. Environmental sealing options exist for sustained operations in harsh environments.
