  • 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 -.

        Quick write-up
        Probably could use some more info/diagrams
        need to (re)find the datasheet

        (took mine apart to find out )

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

            Me too
            Resistor Calculator but I don't know the data for the LED...yet

              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....
