1K Pot Potentiometer - (Pack of 5)
The 1K Pot Potentiometer is a three-terminal variable resistor that is used to vary or change the resistance. It is normally used to control any device. The 10K Potentiometer is used for adjusting various parameters like voltage, current, etc in an electronic circuit.
The 1K POT Potentiometer is a passive electronic component that has two end terminals with a resistive element and the sliding contact called the wiper acts as the third terminal. It is mostly used in applications where a single turn can provide enough control resolution.
Applications of 1K Potentiometer:
- DIY kits.
- Major projects.
- Mini projects.
- Audio control.
- Television control.
- Motion control.
What are Potentiometers?
A potentiometer is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider.

1. What is a POT Potentiometer?
- Potentiometers are also commonly called pot meters or pots. The most common form of potentiometer is the one-turn rotary potentiometer. This type of potentiometer is commonly used in audio volume controls (logarithmic taper) and many other applications. A variety of materials are used to manufacture potentiometers, including carbon composites, cermets, wire wires, conductive plastics, and metal films.
The 1K Linear Taper Rotary Potentiometer is easy to use. Just connect VCC to an outer pin, GND to the other, and the center pin will have a voltage that varies from 0 to VCC depending on the rotation of the pot. Hook the center pin to an ADC on a microcontroller and get a variable input from the user!
