Resources and Going Further

From here, it's up to you to dream up uses for the Rotary Switch Potentiometer. It's a handy board when you need ten easily repeatable settings, nonstandard resistance values, or want to craft custom response tapers.


  • If you're still not convinced that the Rotary Switch Potentiometer is right for your application, we also have regular rotary and slide pots.
  • If you want to use the rotary switch without the resistors, we have a simple breakout PCB for that, too.
  • The Rotary Switch Potentiometer GitHub Repository contains the PCB design files, the sample sketch, and the spreadsheet for calculating resistor values.
