12 position switched rotary potentiometer suitable for launch control startline revs or traction control agression.

A switched potentiometer is so much better than a variable potentiomer since you get 12 definable and repeatable settings.

This unit is a high quality minature switch has 12 positions giving 12 equal voltage steps between 0 and 5V. 5K ohms total resistance. It comes with a control knob and 1m 3 core wiring cable.

At £49.50 it might seem expensive but its an expensive switch plus time consuming to make, you try making your own, many people cant!

I could make my own...but it's easier to pay someone lol.

And worth looking into rotary numbered dials, makes position ID much easier.

You can get a knob with a clear numbered 1-12 dial and a backing plate to suit.

Thanks Stevie, someone has already asked about a numbered backing plate, do you have a link to such an item?

Im using a switch with a 3mm spindle.

Cheers,
