A potentiometer is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding or rotating contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider. If only two terminals are used, one end and the wiper, it acts as a variable resistor or rheostat.

Heated cycle grip

An electrically powered resistance heating handgrip is provided for a vehicle that employs an electrical storage battery. A control circuit to regulate the amount of power provided to the resistance elements in the grip is provided and preferably located within a hollow core that fits coaxially within the open end of a handlebar of a motorcycle or snowmobile, for example. The control circuit is mounted on a thin, narrow, elongated printed circuit board and includes a microprocessor that is programmed to contain a lookup table of temperatures. A thermistor is embedded in the casing of the handgrip proximate the heating element thereof. The thermistor provides feedback signals to the microprocessor which compares the temperature sensor feedback signals to a target temperature and provides or interrupts electrical power to the electrical heating element depending upon whether the temperature indicated by the thermistor is lower than the target temperature. The target temperature is established by a dial mounted in the butt end of the handgrip. The dial operates the wiper of a variable potentiometer to establish the target temperature. Heat is uniformly distributed throughout each handgrip by wrapping the heating element wire thereof about a thermally conductive sheet of aluminum, and encasing the wire within a temperature resistant dielectric sheathing, such as Teflon(R).

Controls for musical instrument sustainers

A sustainer is provided for prolonging the vibrations of strings of a stringed musical instrument. The instrument has at least one magnetic pickup means responsive to the vibrations of the strings. The pickup produces an output signal in response to the vibrations of the instrument strings. At least one control potentiometer provides the capability to control at least one parameter of the output signal. The sustainer comprises a string driver transducer capable of inducing vibrations in the strings, a sustainer amplifier having an input which accepts the pickup output signal, and an amplifier circuit which amplifies the pickup output signal to form a drive signal. The sustainer amplifier also has an output, from which the drive signal transfers sufficient energy to the string driver transducer to sustain the vibrations of the strings. A power supply provides electrical energy to the sustainer amplifier. A power switch provides connection and disconnection means between the power supply and the sustainer amplifier in response to actuation of the power switch in order to turn the sustainer on and off. The power switch is an integral part of the control potentiometer, where the two are a physical combination. Both switch and potentiometer are actuated by the shaft of the potentiometer. Furthermore, the appearance of the control potentiometer having the power switch as an integral part, when viewed from the outside of the musical instrument, is similar to that of the instrument containing the potentiometer without the power switch being present as the integral part of the potentiometer.

Digital positioner for electric controlled valve and method thereof

The invention discloses a digital electric valve positioner and a method thereof. The positioner consists of a control unit, an I/P electric conversion unit, a valve position feedback unit and a malfunction diagnosis unit. By the configuration of the flux characteristic parameters of the positioner, the working flux characteristic aberration which is caused by the factors such as a change of the pressure drop ratio of the adjusting valve, etc. is corrected, which is based on that a plurality of flux characteristics and action directions of the adjusting valve integration are provided. The control to the valve position of the adjusting valve is based on a Fuzzy-PI dual-mode no-interference shifting algorithm. Depending on the internal relationship between the valve position given value, the valve position feedback value and the valve film head pressure which are arranged by a control center and applying a rule-based knowledge reasoning, the malfunction diagnosis is realized through that the user selects to release or partly release the valve film head pressure during the stuck freeing operation. The valve displacement/electric conversion of the valve position feedback unit depends on a non-contact magnetic sensitive potentiometer. The man-machine interaction adopts a touch screen technique, and the control unit is accessed in a control network by an Ethernet interface.
