The appropriate product category
A displacement sensor that outputs a voltage proportional to the amount of mechanical displacement. A potentiometer basically consists of a resistor and wiper (brush). The resistor and wiper accurately convert the relative amount of displacement to a voltage output.
The appropriate product category
A resistor used to adjust the sensitivity of a proximity sensor. The sensing distance increases when the potentiometer is turned clockwise and decreases when it is turned counterclockwise.
