REPPOT604 only option?

Hello, My first post here. It was easy to register, thanks :slight_smile:

This potentiometer becomes inacurate very quickly and I was wondering if it is possible to use a HAL potentiometer to replace it? Or at least something of better quality.

Greetings,

Depending on how that unit is mounted it may (or may not) be a bit of a trick to find an in-stock replacement. The image shows an non-threaded bushing, which is not particularly common.

It would appear to be sold as a replacement/repair item for the company’s joysticks/controllers, and as such there doesn’t appear to be much documentation available describing precisely what it is. You’d probably want to measure the end-to-end resistance and find something that’s in the ballpark, match the important mechanical dimensions, etc. A shorter list of possibilities can be found here.
