The pots used in the RBT have a rated life of 20 000 operations. Although we’d like this to be greater we haven’t found a manufacturer that can supply long life pots with the 50′ track angle that the RBT needs. We have been looking for ways to extend the life of the existing model and have created a support for the end of the pot shaft that is intended to reduce the twisting torque that the lever and spring apply to the pot.
This support was introduced into production in December 2021 and is fitted to all RBT-24 from serial number 21203 onward.
We will supply these free of charge with any replacement POT-050.
