Linear Potentiometer

A potentiometer is also commonly known as pot. One terminal connected to a sliding contact called wiper and the other two terminals are connected to a fixed resistance track. The wiper can be moved along the resistive track either by use of a linear sliding control or a rotary “wiper” contact.

Linear potentiometers produce a resistance output that varies according to the displacement or position of a slider or wiper. They are variable resistors with three leads. Two leads connect to the ends of the resistor, so the resistance between them is fixed.
