Panel Pot Boasts High Rotational Torque

by Mat Dirjish

Vishay Intertechnology’s Sfernice P11H modular panel potentiometer exhibits a high rotational torque of 8 Ncm, reportedly 200% higher than the closest comparable device. Targeting off-road, aeronautics, and industrial applications, the P11H is available in a compact, 12.5-mm size with a 6.35-mm shaft diameter.

A high rotational torque maintains the potentiometer’s stability under harsh environmental conditions like temperature changes and high humidity. It also enables it to maintain its setting and shaft positioning when exposed to high vibration and shock. Additionally, the component provides smooth rotational torque over a 50,000-cycle lifespan with a variation of less than 20%.

Other features of the P11H include a cermet element, 1.5 kVRMS dielectric strength, a temperature range from -55°C to +125°C, standard resistance values of 1 kΩ, 4.7 kΩ, 10 kΩ, 47 kΩ, and 100 kΩ with a contact resistance variation of 2 % or 3 Ω, and a TCR of ±150 ppm/°C.

The Sfernice P11H modular panel potentiometer is available with custom shafts, leads, connectors, and other value-added options. Samples and production quantities of the P11H are available now with lead times of 16 weeks. Pricing for US delivery starts at $5.10 each/1,000. For more details, procure and peruse the Sfernice P11H datasheet.
