Potentiometers, Linear

Our precision rectilinear potentiometers have been developed to operate in industrial and avionic environments, and will withstand high levels of shock, vibration and temperature change without determent. A particular reliability feature is the fail safe characteristic of Sensors Division's tracks; should a part of the track be damaged, the remaining track remains operative and the damage is easily monitored to avoid a catastrophic systems failure.
