Product Feature - Universal Mounting Base



Firstmark's Universal Base allows any 16x string potentiometer to be mounted with extreme range of motion in both the xy and xz planes. While a string position transducer inherently accommodates more misalignment than other position sensing technologies, applications may require versatile mounting in order to ease installation and improve displacement cable life.
