Resistance Range: 0.20% to 5.0% During our early years, Betatronix primarily manufactured precision rotary potentiometers. It wasn't until Texas Instruments offered us the opportunity to work on the fin position actuator of the HARMS and Paveway missiles that we entered the linear motion potentiometer business. Texas Instruments' engineering group worked with us for many years developing the linear motion potentiometer that was a critical component of these missiles. The result: two of the most reliable weapon systems of the modern era. As of today, Betatronix has supplied over 150,000 of these potentiometers. As a result of the technology developed for these programs, Betatronix expanded its presence in the linear motion market. While we maintained our interest in the missile actuator business, we expanded our applications in the areas of animation, robotics, aircraft, industrial equipment and controls, and outer space. Today our linear motion potentiometers are available with wirewound, molded conductive plastic and film resistance elements; in diameters of 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4"; with stroke lengths from 1/16" to 6 feet; and in a wide range of rectangular cross sections. Special mechanical configurations can be designed to meet specific "packaging" needs.
