What is a Potentiometer? A Potentiometer (‘Pot’ or ‘Pots’) is a variable resistor that enables the user to change and regulate the current flow through a circuit. There are different types of potentiometers, including rotary and slide types.
A rotary potentiometer is controlled by a turning knob. Whereas a slide potentiometer, also known as a fader, uses a sliding mechanism to change the resistance.
Pots are used in a variety of applications, for example, to change the volume of the radio.
