Quick Picaxe Prototyping Part 4 – Variable Resistor

The Variable resistor. by far the easiest "circuit" to create

The Variable resistor. by far the easiest

so this installment is by far the easiest of these circuits, only consisting of 2 components, the Potentiometer, and the circuit block. I chose to use a 10k pot, as i have a bunch of them in one of my parts boxes. I’m not sure if it matters what resistance they are, i’m guessing its not overly critical, as i couldn’t see anything in the picaxe manual about values to use.

If you haven’t worked it out already, the terminal block is soldered straight onto the potentiometer. I had to bend the pins of the pot down, so i could get the terminal block nice and close.

So, go have fun kiddies.
