8FLP Linear Potentiometer

Conductive Plastic Model with front and rear extended shaft

About the 8FLP Linear Potentiometer

The 8FLP is a miniature sized and low-cost item with leadwire terminals, a front and rear extended shaft/circle holes and a 10mm stroke.

Features 8FLP

  • Miniature conductive plastic model
  • Measurement range: between 10mm and 15mm
  • Resistance value: 1k to 50kΩ
  • Linearity tolerance: ±2% or ±1%
  • Body dimensions (mm): 8.2x7.3x(depends on the type of sensor)

In the 8FLPA series we have the 8FLP10A and 8FLP15A available.

Special Specifications Available

Spring return device incorporated (friction is approx. 3N [300gf], special electrical stroke (8mm, 12mm), special machining on the shaft.

Special NOTE

When ordering special shaft length of our linear-motion potentiometer, especially models 30LP, 50LP, 8FLP and 15FLP series as standard version with front and rear shaft extention, please be sure to specify the shaft length exactly when the shaft is completely pressed into the housing.

Example: In case of model 8FLP10A standard version As you see from the above right drawing, please specify the exact Length of L1 and L2 when the shaft is completely pressed into the housing. In case of models with spring return device, the condition of spring returned is as right drawing and please specify the exact length of L1 and L2 when the shaft is completely pressed into the housing.
