Ring Position Sensors
FlexiPot™
Ring Position Sensors FlexiPot™
Thin, circular, tactile potentiometer used to identify position, location, or adjust output. FlexiPot™ Ring sensors have a circular shape, a 3-pin male connector, and are designed for use with your own electronics. These sensors are a low powered position sensor with a linear output (force sensing linear potentiometer). The sensors have a total outer diameter of 49 mm (1.93 in.) and a total inner diameter of 27.2 mm (1.07 in.). Physical Properties Thickness: 0.208 mm (0.008") Outer Sensing Area Diameter: 42.44 mm (1.67") Inner Sensing Area Diameter: 33.8 mm (1.33") Total Outer Diameter: 49 mm (1.93") Total Inner Diameter: 27.2 mm (1.07") Connector: 3-pin Male Square Pin* Substrate: Polyester (ex: Mylar)
