The AL17/19 potentiometers in Ø22 mm housing are suitable for applications where a precise and economical multiturn potentiometer is requiered.
The AL17/19 series is manufactured under the highest quality requirements. The series is distinguished by its high quality components, which are made from wirewound resistive elements and manufactured with high-precision mechanical know-how. As a result, the AL17/19 series has superior technical characteristics and enjoys great popularity due to its cost efficiency and numerous customization possibilities.
Two connection variants are available for electrical coupling:
version with radially gold-plated connection pins - suitable for blade terminals (2.8 mm) according to DIN 46247 part 3
version with completely factory-assembled connector - simplifies assembly and serves to prevent short-circuits.
For optimal integration into the application, the following options are available: linearity, resistance value and tolerances, shaft geometry (front or rear) as well as tandem-/multi-gang alignment or special sealing (completely enclosed IP67).
ALR17/19 with "integrated slipping clutch":
The option "integrated slipping clutch" protects the potentiometer from overstressing / mechanical damage to the end stops. This option is recommended for applications where overrunning of the resistance track is unavoidable.
Compared to commercially available low cost potentiometers, they have a much higher life span, reliability and quality. As a result, they provide accurate position measurement with a much longer operating life than low-cost potentiometers. This results in lower maintenance costs and reduced application downtime.
