CS14 HP Pluggable endless turn potentiometer
ACP introduces the CS14 endless turn potentiometer suited to be mated with a RAST 2,5 card edge connector. The three pins of the potentiometer (the collector and the two terminals) are fitted into a 1,55 mm thick plastic housing with a pitch of 2,5mm. The disposition of the three pins is such that a portion of their surface will get in touch with the metal contact beams of the card edge connector when plugged together. In order to ensure a good electrical connection, the contact surface of the pins is tin plated.
The configuration of the plastic housing that accommodates the three potentiometer contacts includes a polarizing slot to prevent incorrect connection of the connector. There are two options to select the location of the slot, either between the initial terminal and the collector or between the collector and the final terminal. The plastic housing shape also incorporates two side entries to allow the latching of the mating connector, either by means of two side hooks or by a sliding tab from the top surface, depending on the connector system chosen.
All the existing CS14 rotors, models, ohm values, shafts and accessories can be supplied with this pluggable version. Examples are features like extended mechanical life, mechanical detents, high temperature fitting, assembled shaft, etc. Furthermore, like in every ACP product family, these potentiometer senes can be customized to meet specific requirements.
Extended temperature versions covering a range from – 40ºC to +120º are available for applications where the worlking temperature interval exceeds the standard limits of -25ºC to +70ºC.
A typical application would be as feedback position sensor of the cooking style selector of kitchen ovens.
