Care Instructions

Our membrane potentiometers & flex sensors are significantly pliable, but we recommend that bending & flexing is kept to a minimum to preserve maximum fidelity & accuracy, especially in hot or cold conditions, and especially if not a Hotpot. Even with flex sensors, you want to avoid folding or kinking before applied to the project, and bending ends away from printed/striped side is recommended. (concave side should be logo-side) MagnetoPots should not be bent, twisted, or flexed at all.

Product Images Are Meant as a Series Representation Only

Our product images often do not represent the length you have selected and instead show a default sensor image for that series. Please refer to the "Active Sensor Length" selector to verify that the sensor length chosen is what you want. Also verify that the desired connector and linearity (margin of accuracy) are selected before purchase.
