Linear Potentiometer Position Sensors

Choose from a wide variety of in stock Linear Potentiometer sensors. Order online today for fast delivery. Linear Potentiometer sensors are a simple yet effective choice for position sensing applications.
 

The primary sensing components of a linear potentiometer are a flat resistive element and a sliding contact (wiper). Linear Potentiometer resistive elements are often made of graphite, resistance wire, or conductive plastic (carbon particles in plastic).  Wipers are often made from a metal alloy which provides its own spring force against the resistive element.  They are usually multi-fingered to decrease contact resistance against the resistive element. 


Linear Potentiometers are best for applications...
- That are cost sensitive
- Where the sensor has limited exposure to fluids
- That doesn't require a sensor with an unlimited mechanical life
