For rugged, long-lasting, cost-effective rotational position sensing and performance - turn to Honeywell Sensing and Control potentiometers.

Built on the trusted Clarostat and Honeywell legacies of high quality, high-performance position sensing, Honeywell potentiometers (also known in the industry as POTS) convert rotary motion into a change of resistance, supplying a smooth transition of voltage or current levels, then used to control position movement in a wide variety of applications.

Available in cermet, wirewound, metal, plastic, or combination packages, sealed against dust or moisture, and sized to fit into tight spaces, as well as a variety of terminations and flexible mounting options to meet your needs.
