Tiny Slide Pots Run Smooth And Long

(TT Electronics)

TT Electronics combines miniaturization with economy in the PSM050S-10B10KB series long-life miniature PCB mount slide potentiometers. Available in six resistance values ranging from 500Ω to 50 kΩ, and offering linear response with better than 5% linearity tolerance, the 10-mW micro miniature potentiometer has a voltage rating of 100 Vac and operating temperature range of -10°C to +70°C. The components employ a carbon resistive element that is said to be robust and precise, ensuring resistance tolerance within ±20%.


The PSM series potentiometers feature a rated lifetime of 5,000 cycles with a choice of 4 mm, 5 mm, or 10 mm of mechanical travel. Package width is 5 mm.
