Spectra Symbol offers a potentiometer that works with linear, elliptical or serpentine configurations

Image of Spectra Symbol's SoftPot PotentiometersThe Spectra Symbol SoftPot potentiometer has a form factor of less than 0.5mm in height and is produced in lengths from 10 mm to 2000 mm. The SoftPot potentiometer is so simply mounted that it saves labor costs in addition to the economical product price. It is a sensor for tracking position and is activated by a spring loaded wiper. Perfect for medical devices that require a sealed sensor with a tight form factor, the SoftPot can be adapted to any motion controlled product that operates in temperatures from -45°C to 50°C. This membrane potentiometer works in linear, elliptical, or serpentine configurations giving linear output regardless of the shape of the product. It can also operate by human touch, making it one of the most versatile sensors on the market. The SoftPot is adaptable for any application requiring contact, movement or touch such as medical and dental equipment, airline seating and robotics.
