New Yorker Electronics has introduced two new Vishay Panel Potentiometers featuring integrated knobs and IP67 sealing. Offering a high dielectric strength of 5000VAC and power ratings up to 1W at +40°C, the Vishay Sfernice P16F and PA16F are designed to simplify designs and optimize costs in industrial and audio applications.

By integrating a knob with a panel potentiometer in a single component, the P16F and PA16F devices released today eliminate the need to purchase and assemble a separate knob. Furthermore, with only the mounting hardware and terminals situated on the back side of the panel, the compact potentiometers reduce the clearance required behind the panel to an extremely low < 15 mm.

With a conductive plastic resistive element, the PA16F is designed for audio applications, while the cermet P16F is intended for industrial motor drives, welding equipment, HVAC and lighting systems, and control panels. With their full IP67 sealing, the devices deliver reliable operation in extreme environmental conditions.

The potentiometers are available with custom knob markings, resistance values, wires, and connectors, in addition to detent and switch options. The devices are also available with a metallic knob on request. The P16F and PA16F are tested in accordance with CECC 41000 or IEC 60393-1.

Samples and production quantities of the P16F and PA16F are available now, with lead times of 14 weeks. New Yorker Electronics supplies Vishay Sfernice fixed resistors in wirewound, metal film, thick film, and thin film technologies, as well as a significant range of variable resistors.
