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
