    Linear Potentiometer pinouts

    Anybody have a diagram for this? The data sheet was useless. I was expecting the cable to be connected already.

    Usually, the center pin is the sweeper, and the outer are + and -.

    Thanks, that's a big help. Still fuzzy on wiring the LED.

    You can usually assume LEDs to be 20mA and 2V, though the voltage can often be ignored for 12V etc.

    The LED voltage is significant on 3.3V or 5V, but changing resistor value may not make much difference....
