The KTC series linear potentiometer is designed to provide position feedback for systems with moving parts. This potentiometer can extend to a length of 100mm and is protected by an anodized aluminium outer casing.


This sensor can be used with any device with an analog input. Simply cut and connect a 3-wire Phidget cable as described in the Phidget Cable section on the Connection & Compatibility tab.

Comes Packaged with

  • 2 Mounting Brackets
  • A Wiring Harness with Cap
  • A Rubber Seal
  • A Ball Joint Attachment
  • 4 Mounting Screws

Phidget Cables

To easily connect this potentiometer to a Phidget we recommend you use a Phidget cable. Just snip off the connector from one end of the Phidget cable, strip the ends of the wires and connect them using the screw terminals as shown in the diagram. You can solder multiple cables together in order to make even longer Phidget cables, but you should be aware of the effects of having long wires in your system.

Interface Boards and Hubs

This potentiometer can be read by any Phidget with an Analog Input or VINT Hub port. It will connect to either one using a Phidget cable; see the diagram in the Phidget Cables section below for wiring instructions. VINT Hub ports can behave just like Analog Inputs, but have the added flexibility of being able to be used as digital inputs, digital outputs, or ports to communicate with VINT devices. For more information about VINT, see the VINT Primer.
