Welcome to our potentiometer online guide.

Over the next couple of pages, I will try to introduce you to the topic of potentiometers. But before we move on to details, let's ask ourselves what a potentiometer actually is. Since it is an electronic device, we won't be able to do without a short tour of physics and electronics. But no worries, it won't be all that intense! Three steps will be enough to get an answer to our question. So let's start!

Our online guide comprises several pages. You can choose the topic that is relevant to you directly from the index at the bottom of this page.
