I want to use my 6 pin potentiometer in circuits so I want to know what all the terminals are for. I know the basic principle in the 3 pin pot. I'm completely new so please answer it in simple terms. I have attached a circuit which I want to make which pins do I use for it.
I have also checked readings with a multimeter here they are, I have numbered the pins from 1 to 6 starting from left here are the readings:
Pins 1-6 shows a range of 0 ohms to 53k ohms when I turn the knob.
Pins 1-2 show 0 ohms to 53k ohms.
Pins 2-6 shows only 53k ohms no matter what position the knob is in.
Pins 3-4 show 0 ohms to 53k ohms.
Pins 3-5 show 0 ohms to 53k ohms.
Pins 4-5 show 0 ohms to 53k ohms.
I was thinking that 4-5 should only be at 53k ohms and not vary but it varies.
Here's what my pot looks like:
And here is the circuit I want to use it in:
