Variable Resistors and Potentiometers

(Showing 24 of 76)

A potentiometer is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider. Only two terminals are used, one end and the wiper, it acts as a variable resistor or rheostat. The measuring instrument called a potentiometer is essentially a voltage divider used for measuring electric potential (voltage).
