Product description: Multiturn-Wirewound Potentiometer Series 46

The potentiometers of the series 46 are used as multiturn sensors or manual adjusters, with outstanding linearity and resolution for measuring ranges from 3 to 30 turns.

The optionally integrable limit switches can be factory-configured within the electrically effective angle of rotation or within the signal plateau. Potentiometer with many options.

  • Multiturn 3…20 turns (30 turns on request)
  • Power rating up to 10 W


  • 3…30-turns
  • Limit switch (CW, CCW)
  • Back shaft
  • Tandem version
  • Resistance values from 10 Ohm to 500 kOhm
  • Improved linearity
  • Front shaft adjustments
  • Screwdriver slot
  • Shaft seal

We offer many adaptations on request:
Multi ganged potentiometers, sealed housing case, special electrical and mechanical angles of rotation, and special resistance and linearity tolerances, versions with resistive element as single wire with almost infinite resolution, 25 and 30-turn versions. Furthermore, we can mount gear wheels or attach cable assemblies with or without connectors and much more. Please use our inquiry form and describe for which application you want to use the product so that we are able to determine the optimal product for your design-in.
