Our chosen vendor for the study of potentiometer is Arduino. The two potentiometers chosen for
our study are CA6 (Carbon Potentiometers) and CE9 (Cermet Potentiometers).
Carbon Potentiometers (CA6)- Carbon potentiometers are electronic devices classified as variable resistor. It is used as voltage divider to get variable voltages. Carbon potentiometers can be classified into logarithmic and linear type. Depending on mode of operation. Specifications of CA6 Carbon potentiometer are as follows:
Range of Resistance 100ohm-5Mega Ohm
Max Power dissipation 0.15W (50 degree Celsius)
Max Voltage 200V (DC)
Operating Temperature -25 to +70 (Degree Celsius)
Cermet Potentiometers (CE9)- Ceramic materials are used in these potentiometers giving them a greater ability to absorb and dissipate heat. I.e. higher wattage rating. Continue reading...
