New 1.650" Diameter Rotary, Motorized Potentiometer

Grass Valley, CA - October 6, 2008 - Spectrum Sensors and Controls introduces a new flange mount, motorized plastic rotary potentiometer only 1.650" in diameter with 45" side located 24 AWG lead wires. The small size and high reliability of this potentiometer make it an ideal missile fin actuator sensor.

Spectrum's flange mount rotary potentiometer has an electrical angle of 50° ±2°, independent linearity of ± 0.25%, bow-tie tolerance, excellent output smoothness of 0.1% max. and special contact phasing. This new potentiometer features an electro-less nickel-plated, Ultem 2200, thermo plastic housing with a special milled slot, passivated stainless steel shaft and a rotational life of 50 million cycles minimum.

Spectrum's linear and 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 1.650" diameter flange mount, motorized plastic rotary potentiometer is priced at $180 and up depending on quantities and configurations.
