    TinkerKit Vertical Rotary Pot


    TinkerKit Vertical Rotary Pot is a commonly used variable resistor. Turning the knob, if supplied at 5V, the output voltage on the middle pin is between 0 and 5V. This value is sent through the middle pin of the pot. This module gives you back a value between 0 and 5V referring to the position of the middle pin (0 totally left 5V totally right). If attached to an Arduino's input which uses the TinkerKit Shield, values are between 0 and 1023.

    This module is made up of a linear potentiometer of 4.7 kOhm, a signal amplifier, a 3 pins standard connector TinkerKit, a green LED which indicates that the module is correctly powered and a yellow LED with luminosity dependent on the potentiometer's position. This is a sensor. The connector is an output, which has to be attached to an input of the TinkerKit Shield.
