Details for Endless rotation 15 mm SMD carbon potentiometer STS-15
NameEndless rotation 15 mm SMD carbon potentiometer STS-15

The Model STS-15 offers engineers an endless rotation SMD version of the popular PT-15 rotary control. This 360° version adds endless clockwise (CW or CCW) rotation as a part of the current features of the PT-15s already highly configurable mechanical and electrical specifications. That means a wide variety of off-the-shelf mounting methods, custom ohmic (resistance) values, tight linearity performance, along with the six different rotor designs.

This potentiometer offers product designers the flexibility of allowing users full rotational access across the normal stops that have, up to now, limited mechanical rotation. With this design feature, engineers can now design product command features over a 340° range (active electrical travel).

For maximum design versatility, the endless rotation feature can be combined upon request with detents to provide users tactile feedback on each setting and selection – with up to 51 unique detent positions. Virtually any appliance rotary control requirement can be configured using the PT-15’s wide range of standard features. Other interesting optional features include stop positions (detents), a variety of rotors, long life and custom electrical angles.

Engineered to serve as a highly cost-effective control potentiometer for most consumer applications such as ovens, ranges, dishwashers, power hand tools, washing machines and HVAC systems, it also can fit many automotive convenience electronic
