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.

Knobs

A raw, metal pot doesn't look inviting, nor is it easy to turn, which is why every project using pots should have a matching set of control knobs.
