          I used this to replace a dimmer/switch in a triac controlled floor lamp. No problem with the pin out. I'm glad it worked well and fit well in place of the old broken switch.

                      Trying to use it as audio pot w/ switch. The bag says it's a SPDT but the part comes on RS up as SPST. The pot does have numbers 1, 2, 3 on the part; just wish they would put a pin diagram on the bag.

                        This potentiometer does what it is designed to do and holds within all specs doing it. I bought 3 of these to make CBG's and the ohm resistance tested exact between the 3 of them on my DMM. For the price and quality, there are none better for a better price.

                                    I think the biggest misunderstanding here with the wiring diagram issue is not how to wire up a normal potentiometer but that the pin out of the SPST. You can easily google how to wire a pot, but for this specific part I found this one forum had someone who wired up the pot properly, so as to be able to use the integrated SPST switch.[@]The picture in the forum should help. Notice it is wired from the side, through the middle pin on top, from there to the pins on the bottom (which is the switch) and out to where it needs to go.

                                      They probably should include a wiring diagram on the back of the package, but it is pretty easy to figure out with an ohm meter or by shear logistics of the pins. I would rate this device really high since we purchased more than 40 of these and each one gave exactly the same output when hooked to an A/D converter and never had a problem with even one of them.

                                            wow, people amaze me .. wiring diagram?! it is a pot and a switch! How difficult can that be?! You can always use an Ohm meter to verify pins if need to be! But Ohm may even be a foreign word for some here ... I do like the comment "If you need a schematic for this...Set down the soldering iron and back away slowly." And btw, how the heck do you fry one up by mis-pinning it? If that even happens, verify first off all what your requirements are for your design (wattage/power) before buying one!

                                            Overall this is a pretty neat pot for dual use and real estate savings.
