Need an easy way to smoothly adjust any variable on your device? Why not try a potentiometer from the Troyka Module series? It’s easy to work with and extremely easy to use - no soldering, no small components, no confusion. Nothing needs to be set up, everything is ready for you!
This potentiometer is convenient to use for the manual setting of parameters such as: setting the time on a digital stopwatch, the brightness or contrast of a display, the speed of a motor, or even the pitch of a sound. The potentiometer is inherently an analog sensor that tells the microcontroller the position of the potentiometer knob.
Additionally, there is a notch set at the mean value so it’s easy to set and reset.
This potentiometer from the Troyka Module series can be neatly placed on the front panel of your device, fastened with М3 screws.
The output of the sensor is an analog signal with the voltage level being directly proportional to the angle of the potentiometer knob.
Connect via the 3-pin jumper cable to receive a signal from the module. The 3-pin jumper cable needed for the connection is included in the kit.
There are several different ways to wire this module:
Troyka Shield. The most straightforward method. Connect the module to a pin group on Troyka Shield with the 3-pin jumper cable and you’re ready to interface with it from your Arduino.
Troyka Slot Shield. The best choice for quick prototyping. Using slots on the shield, you can get rid of cables. The module will be held securely in place using both pin headers.
Breadboard. For advanced use. Troyka pin headers have 0.1” spacing which is compatible with any breadboard. Simply wire the module like you would do with any IC.
