Hybrid Potentiometers

Multiturn potentiometers up to 3600° with hybrid resistance element

Hybrid potentiometers are multi-turn potentiometers for measuring ranges up to 3600° and have the advantages of conductive plastic potentiometers in terms of signal quality, resolution and lifespan. They represent a hybrid solution between wirewound and conductive plastic potentiometers.

The resistance element of hybrid potentiometers consists of a wire-wound resistor element which is covered with conductive plastic. This technology allows the measuring range with up to 3600° and the advantages of conductive plastic. Thanks to the conductive plastic layer, the stepped voltage output of wire-wound elements are suppressed and a continuous signal without steps is generated.

Hybrid potentiometers should be operated at lower current load than wirewound potentiometers. As with all conductive plastic potentiometers, the wiper current must be kept as low as possible. Thus, the one should use a voltage divider circuit. We are happy to fulfill product-specific adaptations for the optimal "design-in" in the respective application.
