Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. announced its PE60 power panel potentiometer with a cermet element that features a 6-W power rating at 50°C. With US and EU bushing threads and a fully sealed package, it is intended for industrial and aeronautic control panel and heavy-duty control applications in end products such as cockpits, trucks and tractors, HVAC systems, welding machines, tooling machines, field and mine equipment, and water-resistant equipment. Offering a compact 25 mm diameter, the Sfernice device is smaller than other panel potentiometers. Its cermet element provides better stability than carbon elements, while its strong dielectric (2,500 VRMS) and non-inductive design offer more robustness. Custom shafts are available in accordance with drawings supplied by users.
