Potentiometer rotates 360°
“This sensor now offers product designers full rotational access across the normal stops that have, up to now, limited mechanical rotation. Engineers can now design product command features over a 340º range active electrical travel,” said the firm. “Endless rotation can be combined with detents to provide tactile feedback with up to 51 unique positions.”
Applications are expected in ovens, hobs, dishwashers, power hand tools, washing machines and air conditioning systems. “It also can fit many automotive convenience applications,” said Piher.
