New 0.500" Diameter Linear Potentiometer Features Ball Rod Ends

Grass Valley, CA - December 15, 2006 - Spectrum Sensors and Controls introduces a new linear potentiometer only 0.500" in diameter and 2.500" long with ball rod ends. This new potentiometer serves many aerospace applications including as an aircraft actuator sensor. This linear potentiometer provides a long rotational life of 10 million cycles with an excellent output smoothness of 0.1% maximum.

Spectrum's linear potentiometer has an electrical stroke of 1.50" in length and an independent linearity of + 1% with a passivated stainless steel housing. These potentiometers have infinite resolution and lead wires of 24 AWG that are 60.0" in length.

Spectrum's linear & rotary potentiometers utilize a co-molded conductive plastic element for a hard smooth surface and greater long term reliability compared to raised circuit element potentiometers. In Spectrum's process the termination and resistance materials are simultaneously molded with the base substrate.

Spectrum Sensors & Controls new 0.500" x 2.500" long linear potentiometer is priced at $125 and up depending on quantities and configurations.
