Fullerton, Calif. Providing an economical method for fine tuning circuits over a greater range, TT electronics BI Technologies has recently developed a RoHS-compliant, 3-mm single-turn potentiometer with an extended resistance range from 10 ohms to 2 Megohms.
Designated the Model 22 trimmer, the surface-mount cermet trimming potentiometers are available in J-hook and side mount packaging designs. In addition, the price of the sealed miniature potentiometers has been reduced to make them competitive for a wide range of applications, according to the company.
The Model 22 single-turn trimming potentiometers have a standard resistance tolerance to ±20% and absolute temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) values to ±100 ppm/°C with power ratings to 0.125 W at 70°C. The operating temperature range is -55°C to 125°C.
They feature a 12-mm tape width and 4-mm sprocket pitch, and are available in tape and reel packaging. Click here for more product information.
Typical pricing for the 3-mm single-turn potentiometers starts at $0.62 in quantities of 5,000, and $0.59 in quantities of 10,000. Delivery is from stock to six weeks.
