Rotary Potentiometers - High Performance

The high performance series of rotary potentiometers are designed with an aluminium mounting case and fitted with two precision stainless steel ball-race bearings to provide superior vibration and shock resistance.

The measurement element combines layered track technology with low-force multi-fingered electrical contacts, to provide a sensor with infinite resolution and long operation life. They are extensively used in both motorsport and industrial applications where precision measurement, reliability and quality is required in high vibration and shock conditions.

RP5200 series

  • Aluminium flange mounting case
  • Twin ball-race shaft bearings
  • Electrical angles, 100°, 130°, 350°
  • Three stainless steel shaft options
  • Maximum temperature 125°C (257°)
  • Sealed to IP66
  • Optional heat shrink boot

The RP5200 high performance rotary potentiometer series is manufactured with a flange mounting case for premium strength and durability. They are used extensively in motorsport applications for throttle actuation and gear selection control, where system reliability is a consideration. The sensor is available with the option of three stainless steel shafts that include sprung, round and blade.
