Rheostats, like potentiometers, are variable resistors used to control the current flowing through a circuit. However, unlike potentiometers, they use two-terminals, even when three are present. As rheostats have to carry a very significant current, they are often constructed as wirewound resistors.
At LPC Components, we manufacture a variety of rheostats suitable for different commercial applications. Whether you need a rheostat for control, tuning or calibration, our variable rheostats are efficient and up to the task. Here are some of the types of rheostats we manufacture:
- High Power Rheostats (Torostats)
- Open Wound Rheostats
- Enclosed Rheostats
- Front Board Mounting
- Back Board Mounting
- Bench Mounted Units
- Motorised Rheostats
- Double Ganged & Triple Ganged Units
- Knobs, Dials & Accessories
