15-mm carbon / cermet SMD potentiometer

With outstanding material properties and fabrication techniques, ceramic-based potentiometers are the most appropriate choice over carbon when higher performance in terms of tolerance, accuracy and heat dissipation is needed.

Compliant with RoHS3, REACH and lead-free reflow soldering, two versions of 10 and 15mm have been designed for automotive and industrial applications that require precise control in a compact design.

IP54 sealed, the PSC-10 and PSC-15 potentiometers feature a variety of different rotor designs, fixed stop positions and shaft styles.
