  • Potentiometer with detent (PWS-25) is a conductive plastic potentiometer with center on off switch.
  • PWS-25 is available in two standard ohmic values 5k ohms and 10k ohms with a center tac-tile switch makes it a compact solution for several applications.
  • PWS-25 is a conductive plastic potentiometer and hence has a extremely long life.
  • PWS-25 is available with a single turn or endless without stop version.


For best performance of PWS-25 below points needs to be taken into consideration.
1)The hole in the panel should not be more than 9.5mm.
2) PWS-25 should be mounted with Star washer given along with the product and perpendicularity between the
