There are Trimming Potentiometer (aka trimmers) - pots designed for "set and forget" applications. They are used for "trimming" the value of a resistor, and are commonly used for calibrating instruments, setting the bias current on power amplifiers, and a host of other areas where a circuit cannot be relied upon to give an exact gain, output voltage, or current. Naturally, a normal panel pot can be used, but these are very much bigger, and any calibration or setup control should not be made available for everyone to fiddle with as they please.

This is a very small sample of those available. The first and fourth are multi-turn types, and these should be used when a very precise setting is required. Because they are sealed, they are relatively immune from contamination, and for all but the most trivial application, should be used instead of the open types. Trimming Potentiometer(as shown) are generally available as vertical or horizontal - the choice is usually made based on ease of adjustment of the final circuit.

Potentiometers

7 Dec 2010

A common element in electronic devices is a three-terminal resistor with a continuously adjustable tapping point controlled by rotation of a shaft or a knob. These variable resistors are known as potentiometers when all three terminals are present, since they act as a continuously adjustable voltage divider. A common example is a volume control for a radio receiver.

Accurate, high-resolution panel-mounted potentiometers (or "pots") have resistance elements typically wirewound on a helical mandrel, although some include a conductive-plastic resistance coating over the wire to improve resolution. These typically offer ten turns of their shafts to cover their full range. They are usually set with dials that include a simple turns counter and a graduated dial. Electronic analog computers used them in quantity for setting coefficients, and delayed-sweep oscilloscopes of recent decades included one on their panels.

Variable resistors used as potentiometers have all three terminals connected. This arrangement is normally used to vary voltage, for example to set the switching point of a circuit with a sensor, or control the volume (loudness) in an amplifier circuit. If the terminals at the ends of the track are connected across the power supply then the wiper terminal will provide a voltage which can be varied from zero up to the maximum of the supply.

Kingtronics are potentiometers manufacturer since 1990. Trimming potentiometers are Kingtronics' first products. RKT-3006 is one of the Trimming potentiometers,It is used where very precise adjustments must be made.RKT-3006 has 3 terminal styles:3006W, 3006P, 3006Y. The screw must be turned many times (10+) to move the slider from one end of the track to the other, giving very fine control.

Trimmers come in a variety of sizes and levels of precision; for example, multi-turn trim potentiometers exist, in which it takes several turns of the adjustment screw to reach the end value, allowing for very high degrees of accuracy. Our Kingtronics has many types of Trimming Potentiometers ,for example RKT-3006  RKT-3296 and so on ,these products is for our KT mark ,you can set your heart at rest ,we can guarantee our quality .So if you are interested in our Trimming Potentionmeters, welcome to visit our website: www.kingtronics.com  If you have any questions please contact us, we can try our best to meet your requirements.

A potentiometer is an adjustable resistor. This is why some customers called potentiometer variable resistor. Resistor include fixed resistor and variable resistor. Variable resister (potentiometer) belongs to passive components. A potentiometer is constructed using resistive element comprising an arc of a circle and a sliding contact (wiper) travelling over that arc.

About

Kingtronics International Company was established in 1995 located in Dongguan City of China to handle all sales & marketing for factories located in Chengdu, Sichuan and Zhaoqing, Guangdong, China. In 1990, we established the first factory to produce trimming potentiometer and in 1999 we built up new factory in Zhao Qing, Guangdong. Now with around 850 workers, Kingtronics produce trimming potentiometers, dipped tantalum capacitors, multilayer ceramic capacitors, and diode & bridge rectifier. We sell good quality under our brand Kingtronics, and Kt, King, Kingtronics are our three trademarks. All our products are RoHS compliant, and our bridge rectifier have UL approval. Please visit our Products page, you could please download all our PDF datasheet and find cross reference for our Trimming Potentiometer and capacitors.
