Single Turn Potentiometer

Design Guide



Selecting a Single Turn Potentiometer
Determine size limitations, resistance, power requirements and mounting type.
Select Conductive Plastic element for long life and essentially infinite resolution. For use when wiper current will not exceed 5 milliamps.
Select a Wirewound element for better stability and lower temperature coefficient. Choose Wirewound when using the potentiometer as a variable resistor. Wiper current must not exceed 50 milliamps.
