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 MCP40 series of precision potentiometers is designed to meet the highest demands for 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. Conductive plastic potentiometers are ideal for use in closed-loop control systems. As passive components, there is no dead time due to signal propagation and the signal is continuously available.

  • Very long lifespan
  • Highly accurate sensor
  • Servo flange for precise mounting
  • 2 precision ball bearings
  • Robust metal housing
  • Power saving in applications


  • Rear shaft
  • Center tap
  • Front shaft adjustment
  • Tandem versions

Many adaptations are available on request: Multi ganged potentiometers, sealed housing case, special electrical and mechanical angles of rotation, and special resistance and linearity tolerances. Furthermore, we can mount gear wheels or attach cable assemblies with or without connectors and much more. Please use our request form and describe your application, so we can determine the optimal product for your design-in.
