|The P16 is a revolutionary concept in panel mounted potentiometers. This unique design consists of a knob driving and incorporating a cermet potentiometer. Only the mounting hardware and terminals are situated on the back side of the panel, reducing to a minimum the required clearance. The power rating for the P16 is 1 W at 40°C, with a high dielectric strength of 25 kV and a resistance range up to 2.2 MΩ. Several device options are available, including metallic or plastic knobs, cermet or conductive plastic, and a special version, PA16, for audio applications.
