Potentiometer/Switch Withstands Tough Applications
A precision potentiometer/switch from Wilbrecht Electronics has been specially designed for high quality performance in adverse conditions. Environmentally sealed with transfer-molded epoxy resin and "O" ring shaft seal, the PA 400 potentiometer switch is resistant to elevated temperatures, corrosion, moisture, water, and bodily fluids. Its offers an extremely long rotation life of 25,000 cycles in tough environments in medical, food processing, automotive, construction, and marine applications.
The Wilbrecht Electronics PA 400 Potentiometer/Switch can be utilized in new instrumentation or easily retrofit into existing equipment that is being operated in more demanding environments. From a basic configuration of a 0.394" (10.01mm) cube with gold contacts, the unit is available with a wide variety of bushings, cases, and flat or rounded shafts in varying lengths. Designed with a choice of 8 standard electrical tapers, the switch can be placed at either the clockwise or counterclockwise end of the rotation regardless of the direction of the taper curve. Constructed of non-magnetic materials, the potentiometer/switch is wave solderable and available in English and Metric versions.
