Welcome to the Potentiometer!
A potentiometer is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider. If only two terminals are used, one end and the wiper, it acts as a variable resistor or rheostat.
There are a lot of different potentiometer types, all with their own applications, characteristics and construction. This page lists the different potentiometer types which are described on the potentiometer guide.
Potentiometer is used in a wide variety of applications. This category contains pages explaining various potentiometer applications.
