27 July 2014 Question by: | Product code: 65-1404
Q. What is the distance (pitch) between pin?
A. Hi, thank you for your question. The distance between the pins is 5mm.

12 March 2014 Question by: Tim | Product code: 65-1484
Q. This isn't quite clear to me; does this product switch a set of contacts on and then vary the resistance between them or is the switch electrically separate from the resistor? I was planning to use it as a power switch and volume control in conjunction with the tda2030 amp. Thanks in advance.
A. Hi Tim. Thank you for your question. This is a switched 10K linear potentiometer which can act as an on/off switch and a potenetiometer, however for an audio volume potentiometer they are normally logarithmic in action like 65-1512.
