empowering creative people

Potentiometers are a ratiometric, variable resistor which allows you to control the flow of current using physical input, and they come in all kinds of shapes and sizes.

Rotary

Rotary potentiometers are commonly used in user interfaces to create intuitive, rotary control panels that have physical end points.
