Potentiometers are resistors in which provides variable resistance by adjusting a control device. Digital potentiometers are typically comprised of a resistor array with a plurality of selectable tap points electronically connected to a common terminal. Digital potentiometers can provide a variable impedance as a result of processing a digital sequence. Digital potentiometers are used for integration into electrical/electronic environments since the switching elements can be implemented at least substantially using only electronic/electrical technologies. Digital potentiometers can be used in digital to analog converters, and as replacements for mechanical potentiometers and rheostats. Digital potentiometers often contain digital switching elements which are operated to connect only some of the available resistors to provide a desired resistance value. A typical analog potentiometer contains a resistor which can be tapped at different points to attain a corresponding resistance. Linear potentiometers are devices that measure the relative movement between component parts of a machine, such as an injection molding machine. Potentiometers have a wide range of industry applicatrions such as in systems of control or regulation, in automatic systems of control or regulation, in measuring devices, or in radio technical devices. In an electric power steering system of a vehicle, a potentiometer is linked with a torsion bar spring which receives the steering torque from the steering wheel of the vehicle.
