Grass Valley, Calif. 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% maximum. It offers an electrical stroke of 1.50-inch in
length and an independent linearity of +1% 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.
