The N-15 is produced on FR4 PCB substrate that allows the product to be customized without incurring a significant tooling charge. Available options on the N-15 are laser trimming, custom geared rotors to increase the electrical angle to more than 360°, parts with detents, special mechanical angles, step curves with silver dead zones, custom resistive curves and tight tolerances. Custom parts with different applications such as a rotary switch, absolute encoder or a combination of switching functions along with potentiometer track are also an option.
The N-15 Series is designed to meet a wide range of control or position sensing applications requiring a 360° mechanical angle. Because it offers a 340° electrical angle, it can be used as a potentiometer, as input into an A-D converter or as an absolute encoder for the customer who does not want to use an A-D converter.
