ThinPot Potentiometers

Spectra Symbol offers a low cost sealed potentiometer

Image of Spectra Symbol's ThinPot Potentiometers The ThinPot membrane potentiometer from Spectra Symbol is a resistive element comprised of a conductive resistor, sealed encasement and simple wiper assembly. The device can also function as a voltage divider. The ThinPot is a three-wire system with two resistive output channels and an electrical collector channel. By pressing a wiper down onto the top circuit the ThinPot produces the desired electrical output. The "wiper" is a non-conductive mechanism that depresses the top circuit actuating the potentiometer from the outside of the element. The top and bottom circuits are separated by 0.15 mm (0.006 in) of spacer adhesive build-up and contact between the circuits occurs by pressure (usually 0.7-1.8 Newtons) from the wiper on the top circuit, pushing down until the top circuit connects with the bottom circuit to create a potentiometric output.

Features
  • Linear position sensor
  • Half the width of the SoftPot
  • IP64 dust/splash proof
  • Polyester substrate
  • 3M pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA)
Advantages
  • Multiple ThinPots can be combined on the same control panel
  • Installation complete in a fraction of the time
  • Low cost
  • Sealed for harsh environments
  • Small form factor
