Potentiometer element for recording angles

Our conductive plastic potentiometer elements that are designed for absolute and analogue measurements are available in diameters of approx. 9 mm to 340 mm and with angles of rotation of 25° to 355°. The base material is FR4 although the products are also available in other materials and can be used in a temperature range of -40 °C to +125 °C. The contact technology is a wiper.

The products can be individually adapted to your specific requirements. Tell us the desired diameter, angle of rotation and resistance value as well as your mechanical and electrical requirements and we will produce exactly the right sensor element according to your specifications.
It is possible to integrate individual sensors and switches into a single component.
