Product description: Conductive Plastic Potentiometer MCP40

The MCP40 potentiometers with precision ball bearings and servo flange are suitable for applications where a very long life with very high linearity and precisely mountable sensor is important.

The precision potentiometers of the MCP40 series are designed for high demands on accuracy and reliability. They have outstanding linearity and excellent life expectancy. The sensor is available in a high-resistance version for power-saving requirements. The potentiometer is equipped with a servo flange for precise mounting. In closed loop controlled systems, the conductive plastic potentiometers can be used particularly advantageously. As passive components, they do not cause any dead times due to signal propagation and the signal is infinitely available.

  • Very long lifespan
