NEW PRODUCTS – Panel Mount 10K Potentiometers: Dual Linear / Dual Linear with Switch / Right Angle Linear with Switch
Here we have three new 10K potentiometers, each one offering slightly different features for whatever your project needs.
First (above) there’s the Panel Mount 10K Dual Linear Potentiometer – a dual-ganged potentiometer that will satisfy all your stereo-signal needs. Instead of just one potentiometer, you actually get two separate pots, ‘ganged’ together. Turning the grippy shaft twists both standard linear-taper 10Kohm potentiometers. It’s smooth and easy to turn, but not so loose that it will shift on its own. We also offer this potentiometer in a singular configuration.
Next (below) we have the Panel Mount 10K Dual Linear Potentiometer w/ On-Off Switch. This is a two-in-one – you get a dual-ganged potentiometer and an on-off switch. For the potentiometer-half, you’ve got a dual standard linear-taper 10Kohm potentiometer, with a grippy shaft. It too is smooth and easy to turn, but not so loose that it will shift on its own. It also comes equipped with an on/off switch at the beginning of the shaft’s rotation.
Unlike many of our other potentiometers, the two above are not breadboard-friendly. The pins on the former are about 0.2″ apart so it will fit into a breadboard, but the two rows are close together so you’d short the two halves. The pins on the latter are about 0.15″ apart, and the rows are close together so you’d short the switch to the potentiometer. Thus, we suggest soldering wires to the pins as necessary, using these in a perf-board that doesn’t have the rows connected, or designing a custom PCB.
Lastly (above), there’s the Panel Mount Right Angle 10K Linear Potentiometer w/ On-Off Switch. It’s a two-in-one, with both a breadboard-friendly potentiometer and a switch. We like this one because the right-angle legs are 0.2″ apart with pin-points, so you can plug it into a breadboard or perfboard. To use the switch, you’ll need to solder to the two tabs in the back.
Once you’re done prototyping any of these 3 potentiometers, you can drill a hole into your project box and mount the potentiometer using the included washer and hex nut. We’ve got plenty of matching T18-splined knobs that you can pair up.
