Potentiometers, also known as variable resistors or pots, are electronic components that provide variable resistance in a circuit. They have a three-terminal configuration and are commonly used for applications such as volume control, brightness adjustment, and position sensing.
Types of Potentiometers:
Logarithmic (Audio) Potentiometers,
When selecting a potentiometer, consider factors such as the required resistance range, power rating, linearity, and mechanical durability. Refer to manufacturer specifications and datasheets to ensure the chosen potentiometer meets the requirements of your application.
