The WDA rotary potentiometer allows positional feedback for a rotating part in your application. It can also be used as a dial to control variables such as volume, brightness, or sensitivity.

It has 360° of mechanical travel and 345° of electrical travel, meaning that it can be used for measuring continuous rotation with a small blind spot between each rotation.


This sensor can be used with any device with an analog input. Simply cut and connect a 3-wire Phidget cable as described in the Phidget Cable section on the Connection & Compatibility tab.
