Liner potentiometer from Spectrum Sensors

Spectrum Sensors and Controls offers a linear potentiometer with a 0.5-inch diameter and 2.5-inch length. Featuring ball rod ends, the linear potentiometer may be used in aerospace applications including as an aircraft actuator sensor.

The linear potentiometer provides a rotational life of 10 million cycles with an output smoothness of +0.1 percent maximum. It offers an electrical stroke of 1.50-inch in length and an independent linearity of 1 percent with a passivated stainless steel housing. The potentiometer features infinite resolution and 24 AWG lead wires (60 inches in length). Using a co-molded conductive plastic element for a hard smooth surface and greater long-term reliability compared to raised circuit element potentiometers, the termination and resistance materials are simultaneously molded with the base substrate.

The linear potentiometer is priced at $125 and higher, depending on quantities and configurations.
