What are PCB Pots, Knobs and Encoders?

Pots & Encoders

Our range of Pots and rotary Encoders are available as ‘through-hole’ or ‘SMT mounting style’.  Additionally, choose from horizontal or vertical types.

right angle or vertical pots and encoder types, available at rjs electronics ltd

Rotary Encoders

Encoder switches that require motion to initiate change are rotary encoder switches. The rotary mechanism will either increase or decrease the operation as rotary encoder switches are used to monitor or control, a wide range of mechanical systems, industrial controls, robotics, photographic lenses, and communication devices within commercial and domestic vehicles.

What’s the difference between a Pot and an Encoder?

An Encoder can tell us which way the component is being turned, whereas a Pot can specify its rotational position. Further to this, encoders are able to spin continuously in both directions. While Pots are only able to turn a set distance before they have to stop.
