Product Focus: Novotechnic P6500 Standard Potentiometer

About the manufacturers

Novotechnik produced the first industrial potentiometers for the general machine engineering sector all the way back in the 1950’s, so their knowledge and experience is unparalleled. Since then they have developed the position transducer, as well as the linear and rotary potentiometer. The uses for Novotechnik sensors have increased and they can now be found in a number of industries, including automotive, machine engineering, hydraulic, pneumatic and medical. Through the years their products have been universally recognised for their exceptional linearity, reliability and operating life - characteristics that Novotechnik are still very much renowned for today.


The Novotechnik P6500 is a rotary potentiometer for measuring, controlling and instrumentation applications. When used as a high-precision angular displacement transducer, this potentiometer meets a range of analogue functions also. Example applications include:

  • Used for studying camber angle variations (e.g. when cornering)
  • Measuring wheel position variations
  • Recording test courses and racing tracks for simulators
  • Designing dimensioning wheel houses
  • Designing wheel suspension systems
  • Determining the stress of the material of the tires
