Potentiometer elements rotatory

To the products


Our potentiometer elements can be individually adapted to your specific requirements.
Tell us the desired diameter, angle of rotation and resistance value as well as the mechanical and electrical orientation and we will produce exactly the right sensor element according to your specifications.
We produce individual samples all the way through to large series containing hundreds of thousands of items.
