Chapter 28 – Experiment 20 – POTENTIOMETER

This example will teach you how to use a potentiometer.

The potentiometer is a simple knob that provides a variable resistance, which can be read by the micro-controller as an analog value. You can imagine to have an infinite number of resistors that based on the knob are returning a different resistance value. By turning the shaft of the potentiometer, the the amount of resistance is changed. The central pin is used for read the analog value of the potentiometer.

The breadboard:


The schema:

20 - potentiometer (1)

Finally, the code:

int sensorPin = A0; // select the input pin for the potentiometer
int ledPin = 13; // select the pin for the LED
int sensorValue = 0; // variable to store the value coming from the sensor
void setup()
{ // declare the ledPin as an OUTPUT:
   pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);
void loop()
{ // read the value from the sensor:
  sensorValue = analogRead(sensorPin);
  // turn the ledPin on
  digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);
  // stop the program for <sensorValue> milliseconds:
  // turn the ledPin off:
  digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);
  // stop the program for for <sensorValue> milliseconds:
