Product description:

A range of low-cost 5W wirewound potentiometers that are ideal for loudspeaker volume controls or for motor speed controllers. The potentiometers have a 6mm spindle and fixing hardware is included.

There are two types of potentiometer or 'variable resistor', wirewound and carbon track. Both have their advantages and disadvantages for different uses.

Thanks to their coiled construction, wirewound potentiometers have low noise levels and are mechanically much stronger than carbon track alternatives.
