E15 E-15

The N-15 potentiometer/sensor series has been expanded to incorporate both automotive grade encoders and rotary switches in the same package configuration allowing the user to design in any one of the three options whilst keeping the same board layout and user interface.

The extended temperature range (-40ºC to +120ºC) allows this encoder to be employed in extreme environmental applications where other encoders currently on the market can not be used. This in combination with optional SMD or through-hole mounting makes the E-15 series ideal for automotive heating, ventilation & air conditioning, oven & microwave (white and brown goods in general), kitchen appliance and power tools.
