Here's what I working with. I'm researching some three terminal potentiometers for use as adjustable voltage dividers. The outer terminals are connected to 0V and 5V respectably, so as I turn the knob, the wiper voltage sweeps from 0 to 5V.
My question: Does the tolerance of the potentiometer (5%, 10%, etc.), or the resistance matter for this application.
I'm not sure about the tolerance, but I'm pretty certain that the resistance will only affect the size of the load that the wiper can drive (impedance and what-not).
