Build-in the waterproof type potentiometer, suitable for outdoor use(Drawing)



  • The water proof potentiometer is composed of precious metal brush contact and covered by conductive plastic element. Rotating life (10million cycles)and good resolution.
  • Keep lever strength and compact design
  • Possible to make more safety control system by adding micro switch as detecting neutral position (option)
