Description

Two versions of a simple potentiometer are available, a standard 10K pot and a special 50° pot. Both these pots are plastic bodied with a plastic shaft so they have good water resistance. They are IP50 rated by the manufacturer (Omeg Ltd).

Standard potentiometer

Special 50° 10K pot diagram

A standard 10K linear pot (10K ±20%) to suit all our controllers (except Porter 40). It it of the same dimensions as the 50° pot below, but with solder tags rather than PCB pins.

Special 50° potentiometer

Standard 10K pot diagram

This is a pot made specially for 4QD: it is a ‘standard’ 10K (10K ±20%) linear pot (i.e. with 300° mechanical travel) but with the active part of the track (i.e. the actual resistive track) occupying only the centre 50° of the mechanical travel.

It has a 6mm diameter shaft and is normally used in our Boxed throttle and Finger-tip throttle mechanism. It is also used in the Single-axis ‘Joystick’ interface, pot mounted version. A lever to fit it is available separately.

5K pot for Porter 40

A standard 10K pot can be used with the Porter 40 either by adding a 10K resistor in parallel, or by breaking a track on the board. Both are detailed in the Porter 40 manual.
