New P13SM Submersible Cermet Panel Potentiometer


Vishay Intertechnology Releases Industry's First Submersible Cermet Panel Potentiometer With Full IP68 Sealing Against Deep Sea Water for Operation to 30 m (100 Feet)

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) announces a new submersible cermet panel potentiometer that is the industry's first to be fully IP68 sealed against deep sea water. Featuring a stainless steel shaft and bushing, the P13SM is designed for applications where electrical parameters need to be set with an immersed potentiometer in deep sea salt water conditions up to 30 m (100 feet). The device has been tested salt corrosion proof to 960 hours.
  • Features a heavy-duty construction
  • Reduces costs by eliminating the need to design and build sealed protection against sea salt water

    Product Group: Vishay Sfernice, Potentiometers / July 2011

    Key Device Specifications:
  • Power rating to 1.5 W at + 70 C
  • TCR of 75 ppm/C typical
  • Cermet element
  • 3.17 mm and 6 mm shaft diameters
  • Temperature range of - 55 C to + 125 C

    The Perspective:
    The industry's first submersible cermet panel potentiometer to be fully IP68 sealed, Vishay's new P13SM reduces costs by eliminating the need to design and build sealed protection against sea salt water. Tested salt corrosion proof to 960 hours and featuring a heavy-duty construction, the device is designed for applications where electrical parameters need to be set with an immersed potentiometer in deep sea salt water conditions up to 30 m (100 feet).

    Availability: Samples and production quantities of the new P13SM are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks for larger orders.
