Potentiometer Element Wegerfassung 1

Linear potentiometer elements

Our conductive plastic potentiometer elements designed for analogue and absolute measurements can be individually adapted to your specific requirements. The electrical measuring range can lie between 20 mm and 500 mm. The standard base material is FR4 although the products are also available in other materials. The contact technology is a wiper. The products can be used in a temperature range of -40 °C to +125 °C.

Tell us the desired dimensions and resistance value as well as your mechanical and electrical requirements and we will produce exactly the right sensor element according to your specifications. It is possible to integrate individual sensors and switches into a single component.
