What Is It

The sliding potentiometer is an input module commonly used for controlling electrical devices such as a light dimmer or a volume fader on audio equipment.

How It Works

The Slider is a kind of ‘potentiometer’, which is a variable resistor used for measuring electrical voltage as well as current control.

As you slide the bar all the way from the left to the right, it sends a voltage signal from 0 to 3.3V. A microcontroller then converts the voltage level into a digital signal which ranges from 0-1023.
