    Connecting Vishay Spectrol 357 pots to leos BU0836X board

    Hi all,
    Can someone tell me the correct way to wire up the Vishay Spectrol 357 pots.
    There are three pins on the back of the pot, but I am not sure which goes to v5, gnd, or input on the control board

    Cheers

    Rhys

    Rhys,
    1 and 3 go to gnd and 5v, 2 goes to any input. Just make sure pin 2 does not get connected to 5v or you will
    smoke your pot. If the pot goes back to front to what you want, just reverse pin 1 and 3 connection.

    Rhys,
    If u had pin 2 connected to 5volts and the pot was turned closest to the pin connected to gnd then it probably would
    complain, and if left long enough would have smoked.
