The usage of wire wound potentiometers has varied hugely since we started manufacturing them well over 60 years ago. As modern electronic design concepts and digital electronics have evolved over the last 20 years the demand for wire wound potentiometers has declined however there is still a good market and demand for these products from a wide variety of nice markets. These markets include:

  • audio amplifiers, both valve and solid state
  • industrial control circuits requiring a wattage of 2 to 3 watts power rating
  • lighting control circuits
