Arc Segment Potentiometers
Arc Segment Potentiometers are normally mounted directly on the shaft to eliminate costly gearing and reduce weight. These potentiometers can offer cost reductions over the use of conventional components. Given that arc segment potentiometers can survive 500 G's shock, they are typically used for missiles and munitions or space applications.
Key features of Betatronix arc segment potentiometers include:
- Interface directly to the shaft
- Fewer components for reduced weight and cost
- Proven performance in 500 G shock launch environments
- Custom angles per customer requirements, Open or closed design
