Need a simple and intuitive way to manage your gadgets? Smoothly adjust volume, accurately mix colors on an LED strip, or even adjust your air conditioner - this module is only limited by your imagination and by the ADC of the control board.
It is very convenient to use a potentiometer for the manual setting of parameters like a timer's time, brightness or contrast of a display, or motor speed. Our slider is essentially an analog sensor that tells the microcontroller the position of the slider. The output of the module is an analog signal, with a voltage level directly proportional to the location of the slider. In the left most position, the potentiometer has almost zero resistance and outputs supply voltage to the signal pin S. In the rightmost position the resistance is maximum - there will be essentially zero voltage at pin S.
It's easy to work with and extremely easy to use - no soldering, no small components, no confusion. Nothing needs to be set up, nor complicated eqations needed - everything is ready for you to use out of the box!
This module from the Troyka Module Series can be cleanly placed on the front panel of your device, secured with M3 screws.
Connect the module via 3-pin jumper cable. The 3-pin jumper cables needed for the connection are 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 - we've even added three additional sets of legs to the module to secure it to the shield.
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.
