Built on the trusted Clarostat and Honeywell legacies of high quality, high-performance position sensing, Honeywell potentiometers (also known in the industry as pots) convert rotary motion into a change of resistance, supplying a smooth transition of voltage or current levels, which are then used to control position movement in a wide variety of applications.
Rotary potentiometers are compact, rugged, thick-film devices that use either conductive plastic, cermet, or wirewound elements. Developed for potential military applications, our proprietary conductive plastic offers extensive temperature range and infinite resolution, and is designed to provide precision position measurement. Cermet and wirewound elements are stable over a range of operating temperatures and provide high power dissipation and improved resistance temperature coefficient. A variety of terminations and flexible mounting options are available to meet your needs.
