The Sparkfun Rotary Potentiometer is a center-tap linear type potentiometer. The resistance displayed by the outer two pins consistently remains at 10K, while the center pin's resistance to one of the outer pins can vary from 10K Ohm to approximately 50 Ohm. As a linear potentiometer, the resistance will vary linearly with its position, making it an excellent choice for general user interfaces.
Perfect for use in a breadboard, this potentiometer may require trimming off the large metal anchors for compatibility with certain breadboards. This minor adjustment allows for a seamless fit and optimal functionality.
Key features of the Sparkfun Rotary Potentiometer include its model number: R0902N-DD1-B10K-GP.
