Operating in high temperature environments calls for a more reliable heat resistant position sensor. Spectra Symbol’s HotPot potentiometer makes tracking movement in a volatile environment easier. It has a thin and sealed form factor that allows it to operate at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C. This feature makes the HotPot an ideal position-sensing tool for industrial, military, and automotive applications. Design engineers choose this product because of its robust design and high life cycle output.
Made from impregnated fiberglass material, the HotPot sednsor is highly resistant to temperature fluctuations. It operates either via an actuator or finger contact. OEMs and engineers prefer using this pot with a finger or stylus. attached to the shaft is a wiper that provides absolute position location.
Features and Advantages:
- Robust design for maximum durability
- Easy to install or mount
- Sealed fro maximum reliability in harsh environments
- Cost effective/economical
- Offers low form factor
- High life cycle and tolerance to heat and humidity
- Dust and water proof
The Hotpot is an invaluable tool for applications that require absolute position sensing. You can combine multiple HotPots in a single control panel. You can change the resistance by simply pressing down on tdifferent parts of the strip, which can measure up to 900mm. By changing the resistance, you can easily calculate the relative position on the strip.
