    Anyone having troubles with the +ve and Ground reversing the pot direction ?
    Normally all hall effect pots have those right hand and left hand rotation restrictions ... it defines the feedback signal growth direction whither CW or CCW ...

    But I found this 360 industrial Conductive Plastic pot that can be connected both ways and withstand 5 million shaft rotation for the bushing mount type and 10 million shaft revolution for the servo mount type .

    Speedy,
    That would have saved me a lot of mechanical fabrication on one of my AC Pot Fixtures...............I guess, better late than never?

    hi noorbeast,
    With 40 degrees max up and down, so 80degrees total you use hall sensor pot with 180 or 90 degrees
    These one?

    Why not 90s as your lever work is 80degrees ?

    Because I want some headroom to play with and 10 degrees, 5 up 5 down, is not much.

    I'm agree with your choice. My levers have 80/90 total degrees but I think it's better using 180s pots
    Thank you for your support

    Hi all, I would like you to delve deeper into the subject of the 360-720 simulators, are more difficult to perform and more expensive, but more fun hehehe :D
    And I understand that with the sensors hall, we can rotate with many degrees of freedom, but I am really an electronica fan, but I want to do the 360-720 simulator, those who could play the "Off roard drive" in one of these, know they are More realistic, but have no compatibility with other games.
