    100 mm linear taper slide potentiometer

    Does anyone know where I can find some 100 mm linear taper (B) slide potentiometers? The cheapest I can find are $15 each!
    Thanks

    Re: 100 mm linear taper slide potentiometer

    I am using Bourns linear pots with a hig duty cycle. It is part number
    PTF01-152A-103B2
    This is a Mouser part number. I paid $5.52 a while back.

    See; www.mouser.com

    Re: 100 mm linear taper slide potentiometer

    I have a related question.

    Is there a difference between stereo and mono pots as it relates to sim building? I've been able to find 100k pots but they are in stereo. Should I be looking for a particular type of pot? As I look at the Mouser catalog page it seems the above pot is used for mixing as well as other audio apps. Is that the case for all slide pots or just the principal use for them?

    Well okay a few related questions .. trying so hard to not sound like a newbie though..

    Re: 100 mm linear taper slide potentiometer

    Thanks for the info on mouser. Unfortunately that is only a 45 mm slide. I am using these for cessna- type throttle/mixture/prop and need at least 3-3/8" of travel so anything less than 100 mm will be too short.

    Stereo pots are 2 pots in one house. That's all. You should look for lineair pots, most pots used in audio will be logaritmic.

    HI , I`m using real Cessna throttle and mixture units,
    80 mm will be enough for full in to full out

    Re: 100 mm linear taper slide potentiometer

    Mouser also sells a linear 100mm pot. i will try to find a part number. I just ordered and interfaced them into my cessna (210) TPM controls. The Prop and mixture each would have worked with an 80mm pot, but the throttle required 93mm of travel. Will try to get you the Mouser part later today...

    Re: 100 mm linear taper slide potentiometer

    The Mouser Part Number has a 652 in front of the Bourn part number, therefore,

    652-PTF01-152A-103B2 for a 100 mm pot. I used one on my throttle. And yes these are stereo pots which menas that there are two pot circuits in one case. I hooked up one side to my Opencockpits board and it works just fine.

    Same thing I did, although I hooked them into my ch yoke interface and replaced the three top levers.

    Re: 100 mm linear taper slide potentiometer

    Great, Thanks a lot guys. I plan to hook these into in leo bodnar joystick controller. So as far as stereo vs. mono are you saying that the only difference is that there are two outputs for ther stereo pot? therefore all I have to do is use one of the outputs and ignore the other?
