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.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
