- The PT and PTN family of rotary potentiometers are long-lasting and offers a resistance rating from 1 to 2000 kΩ.
- The PT and PTN family of potentiometers are available in both the shaft and shaftless options.
CUI Devices has released a PT and PTN family of rotary potentiometers. The new potentiometers are available in both the shaft and shaftless options. The rotary potentiometers feature resistance ratings from 1 to 2000 kΩ and panel mount or through-hole mounting styles. The potentiometers are ideal for control inputs for electronic circuits and audio control applications and are rated for a rotational life of 10,000 cycles.
A rotary potentiometer is a basic electrical component that works as a variable resistor. It consists of a shaft or knob that can be turned to adjust the resistance in a circuit. The resistance can be used to control the flow of current or to adjust the voltage in a circuit.
These potentiometer models offer linear, logarithmic, or reverse logarithmic tapers, several shaft or rotor styles, and various terminal configurations. These potentiometers are suitable for a wide range of operating temperatures from -10 up to 70°C. The rugged potentiometers can work at mechanical angles of 235, 265, or 280 degrees, and power ratings of 0.05, 0.15, or 0.20 W. These potentiometers can be used in audio equipment, lighting controls, and other applications where variable resistance is needed.
