Title: Potensiometer question
Post by: methos on March 23, 2008, 21:37:47 PM
Good evening electronic maniacs

I have a question for potensiometer. I have example a 10K potensiometer. Means to have max 10K correct? But the minimum? what should be?
And also for a 100K what is the minimum?

Thanks you!

I'm not totally sure but i think there are 0- to whatever Ohms and also specified range ex. 10 - 100.
Search better an electronics e-store.

Most of the times and not always is 0. Depends on the type of the potensiometer.
