Hoffmann+Krippner has posted a new white paper, “How to Choose the Right Potentiometer for Reliable Position Sensing.” It can be downloaded here.
Created to help design engineers understand how membrane potentiometer sensors work and how to pick the right type of membrane potentiometer for their project, this new Hoffmann+Krippner white paper covers the various types of potentiometers, potentiometer development history, their various components and materials and an overview looking at the technical issues of printed potentiometers and foil (membrane). The paper also covers the various technical specifications of accuracy and linearity when specifying potentiometers.
“Specifying or designing a potentiometer sensors is a complex challenge for many developers, especially those now looking to create Internet connected devices and solutions,” said Jens Kautzor, CEO of Hoffman+Krippner. “This new guide provides an easy to understand high level look at these technologies as well as a detailed explanation of the most important technical specifications and how to understand them.”
