This slide potentiometer is a linear variable resistor with a total resistance of 10KΩ. When you move the lever from one side to the other, its output voltage will range between 0 V to the VCC you apply. Three of the four Grove pins are connected to VCC, GND and the ADC IN on the slide, while the remaining pin is connected to a green indicator LED. You can use the indicator LED to visually display the change on the potentiometer.
- 30 mm long slide length
- Linear resistance taper
- Grove compatible
- Voltage divider: a linear circuit that produces an output voltage as a fraction of its input voltage
- HID for controlling panels
|Rotational life||>15,000 cycles|
|Total resistance tolerance||+/- 20%|
One interesting projected created with this module was a remote control for a small RC car. This can be seen in the image below.
