    Achilles,

    There is no such thing as a Phidget pot.
    They're regular off-the-shelf pots that folks at Phidgets have soldered wires to.
    The Phidgets web site has documentation on subjectI
    do not work for Phidgets and do not support their hardware.

    Regards,
    Alan.

    I use slider pots on my mixture handles. Phidgets makes them and they work great. Click the link in my sig to see how i have them hooked up. I also use standard 100k linear pots in ym autopilot panel, and they work like a champ, if a little on the sensitive side.
    I'm not replicating anything, because I like to fly everything.
