Product Overview


A great start to being able to use a string pot sensor is here. This kit comes with the enclosure where the potentiometer and spring tensioned wire meet. If you would like to download a 3d Printer file to print your own enclosure, check out the String Potentiometer Kit (no housing).

A portion of the proceeds of this sale will be given to Chap Robotics FRC team 2468, who developed and used this idea on their competition robots.

Included Hardware:
  • Three - 4-40 x 0.75" Screws (to seal the enclosure)
  • One - 4-40 x 3/8" SHCS (to capture the potentiometer shaft)
  • One - Retractable String component
  • One - Precision Potentiometer, 10 turn, 5Koh
  • One - String Potentiometer Enclosure
Note: With the retractable string provided you will only be able to get about eight to nine turns out of the ten turn potentiometer. To get the full range, use the spring from the retractable string component and a 30" string instead.

    Quality OK. I would have designed mounting base much larger to incorporate 4 screws and made housing thicker for unanticipated abuse.

    Got two, installed as steeringangle sensors, they work great and you can't beat the price
