The P13SM offers a high power rating to 1.5 W at + 70 °C and tight TCR of ± 75 ppm/°C typical. The device’s cermet element provides better stability than carbon elements, and offers greater reliability and robustness.

Featuring a heavy-duty construction, the Vishay Sfernice potentiometer is optimized for use as a voltage divider operator interface for underwater equipment, submarine scooters, and lighthouses. The P13SM reduces costs by eliminating the need to design and build sealed protection against sea salt water for the device in these applications.

The potentiometer is available in 3.17 mm and 6 mm shaft diameters, and multiple shaft lengths. The device offers a temperature range of – 55 °C to + 125 °C to ensure reliable operation even in extreme environments.

Samples and production quantities of the new P13SM are available now, with lead times of 10 weeks for larger orders.
