TT Electronics Expands Variable Resistor Portfolio


Reading time ( words)

TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, announced the addition of three new product families and three series expansions to its variable resistor portfolio. Portfolio additions include one new encoder series and two new single turn potentiometer families, along with the broadening of three existing potentiometer families. These new products are ideal for rugged industrial applications such as welding equipment and machine controls, as well as a variety of professional audio applications, including electric guitars, amplifiers, and mixers.

“TT Electronics has been committed to providing world-class products and service to the industrial and professional audio markets, and our newest additions are indicative of that pledge,” said Barry Peters, VP Product Management and Engineering, TT Electronics. “With more technical variations than ever before, our portfolio offers designers greater flexibility to enhance the quality and reliability of their end products.”

The EN05 series miniature rotary encoder is an innovative solution for precision control of small portable equipment. EN05 rotary encoders are designed for long life (100,000 cycles minimum) in a 5.8 mm wide package. Its compact size and hollow shaft design make the EN05 encoder ideal for applications where space is limited but precise functionality control is required, such as computer accessories and electronic devices.

The new P166 and P265 rotary potentiometer families offer a wide range of resistance, from 500Ω to 1MΩ, and are designed to meet modern wave soldering processes. These products are available with a variety of taper, shaft, bushing, multi-gang, multi-output, and switch options. The P265 series contains an internal shaft seal for moisture protection and complies with PCB wash requirements and MIL-R-94 standards, where required. Sample applications for P166 include amplifiers, mixers, synthesizers, appliances, audio/car radio, and industrial controls; P265 applications include audio visual equipment, test and measurement equipment, walkie talkies, portable radios, and laboratory equipment. 

Upgrades to the existing P09x and P260 series TT potentiometers better clarify the options available within each series. The P09x is now available with concentric shafts (P09xC) and centre tap styles (P09xT), suitable for audio equipment, amplifiers, mixers, TV and multimedia sound systems, headphones, and portable radios. The P260 series offers a P260L with standard wire lead and a P260R with standard ribbon lengths. The P270 series includes the P279, featuring heavy duty bushing style and seven new electrical angles, ideal for machine controls, welding equipment, and foot pedal controls.

Why do we train and educate our employees? Here, I will share my perspective based on what is happening in facilities trying to outsource their products, as I see that many companies are losing the tribal knowledge of how things are manufactured and the basic skills necessary to physically build a product.
