Vishay Sfernice panel potentiometer is modular

Available from distributor, New Yorker Electronics, Vishay’s 12.5mm modular, panel potentiometer supplies high rotational torque of 8Ncm in a compact 12.5mm package.

The Vishay Sfernice P11H series of modular high torque panel potentiometers’ rotational torque of 8Ncm is 200 per cent higher than the closest competing device, says Vishay. It is supplied in a compact 12.5mm size with a 6.35mm shaft diameter.

The panel potentiometers are designed to operate when under high mechanical constraints from vibration or shock. They provide high torque with smooth operation throughout the life of the potentiometer, says the company, with tolerances of ±10 or ±20 per cent and in resistance options of 1k, 4.7k, 10k, 47k and 100kOhm. The operating temperature range is between -55 and +125 degrees C.

They are approved to CECC 41000 and IEC 60393-1 with a seal rating of IP 64 and operate over a lifespan of 50,000 cycles. Device options include custom shafts, switches, connectors, wires and special leads and tapers. Applications include voltage dividers or rheostats for light, radio volume and air conditioning control in tractors, construction equipment and aircraft cockpits plus industrial tool settings and electric welding, motor speed and low power controls.

The W10 PCB pin mount lead is 35.6mm (1.40 inches) long and the Y00 solder lug (wire mount) lead option is 30mm (1.18 inch) long. Both are for vertical mounting but PCB pin horizontal mounting is easily customisable, says New Yorker Electronics. Other device options include custom shafts, switches, connectors, wires and special leads and tapers.

New Yorker Electronics is headquartered in Northvale, New Jersey. It is a franchised distributor of electronic components and value-added services to OEMs and contract manufacturers in the commercial, industrial, and aerospace / defence markets. 

Founded in 1948, the AS9120B and ISO 9001:2015-certified company provides customer support while providing direct franchise access to an inventory of passive, interconnect, electromechanical and mil-spec components, as well as semiconductor devices.
