I need to change this potentiometer that act as an encoder in a Native Instrument controller/mixer (Kontrol S5), as it has become faulty and increases values by itself at the lower end of its range... very strange! Having it fixed by NI would cost me about 300 $US with shipping, which is prohibitive, so I am looking to do it myself, as I have some experience with de/soldering.
I have searched for countless hours but have not been able to identify it. So far I gathered that the B103 marking says it is 10K linear, but I have no clue what the 5F2 marking means.
Other useful information:
- has a center detent
- has about 300 degrees of turn
- shaft diameter 6mm and length 15mm
- runs inside a 12V device
It looks like a Bourns PTV111 series, but those have a plastic shaft versus metal on this one.
Any help pointing me in the right direction would be GREATLY appreciated!
Here are images of the potentiometer :
