Wiring a 10k pot for drive.
10k pot wiring.
Arduino s pin a0 to a5 can work as analog input.
If the knob of the pot is positioned exactly halfway between the two extremes the resistance between the black wires equals 10kohm 2 5kohm.
I am building a panel for a chain conveyor with 3 powerflex 4 drives.
Position the knob halfway between this mid point and the right extreme and the resistance between the two wires equals 10kohm 4 2 5kohm.
As explained above the two pins on the side connect to the ends of a carbon strip.

Some standard values for a potentiometer are 500ω 1k 2k 5k 10k 22k 47k 50k 100k 220k 470k 500k 1m.
The middle terminal or terminal 2 is the input signal for the pot.
I decided to twist three pieces of wires together to bundle them.
The third terminal or terminal 3 is your output signal.
The middle one connects somewhere between the ends of this strip.
The greater the resistor value the smaller the current will flow.
Arduino rotary potentiometer.
The first terminal or terminal 1 is your ground.
What does the third potentiometer pin do well the pins doesn t really do anything actively.
We have a resistive track whose complete resistance will be equal to the rated resistance value of the pot.
As you can see the green wire goes to the centre.
By connecting an output pin of the potentiometer to an analog input pin we can read the analog value from the pin and then converts it to a meaningful value.
I am using green blue and black.
When the knob is turned all the way to one side the potentiometer has a resistance of near 0ω and when the knob of the potentiometer is turned all the way to the other side the potentiometer has a resistance of 10kω.
Place your pot on a flat surface with the 3 prongs that stick out facing you.

The 10 kω logarithmic potentiometer provides the volume control facility.
This is called power wattage rating.
It has three terminals which require wiring.
The analog input pin converts the voltage between 0v and vcc into integer values between 0 and 1023 called adc value or analog value.
Resistors are also classified based on how much current it can allow.
Wiring a pot can be confusing at times.
In between these two resistances the potentiometer can hold any resistance between 0ω and 10kω.
These are your terminals.
Let us assume a 10k potentiometer here if we measure the resistance between terminal 1 and terminal 3 we will get a value of 10k because both the terminals are fixed ends of the potentiometer.
