Geared potentiometers are specialist devices that consist of two components. The first is a gear mechanism several precision gear wheels and one measuring gear and the other is an electrical resistor that has a variable resistance value that can be adjusted through turning. A geared potentiometer emits an ohmic output signal that is proportional to the number of turns and are particularly suited to a wide range of applications with low signal noise and long sevice life such as the lifting gear of cranes and excavators.

Starting at: £845.00Novotechnik's IGP heavy-duty geared potentiometer has a maximum angular rotation of 3800° that can be converted into a voltage proportional to the angle of rotation, through the medium of a conductive plastic potentiometer. Heavy-duty bearings allow for high axial loading on the shaft; gearwheels or even chain drives may be used to directly drive the shaft. Learn More
Starting at: £554.00GP heavy-duty geared potentiometers supply an analogue output signal proportional to the number of turns. The gear mechanism comprises precision gear wheels, and the shaft is mounted in double ball bearings. The gear mechanism and the potentiometer are mounted and pinned in the factory for minimum backlash. Learn More
