Speed Potentiometers & Knobs
Speed Potentiometers & Knob Types
A speed potentiometer, also known as a speed pot or rabbit/turtle dial, is used to adjust the maximum speed at which your scooter can operated.
In a world of sophisticated digital electronics, the humble analog speed potentiometer (or speed pot) still holds its own as the best device for controlling the volume of a low level current. Functioning in the very same manner as a lighting dimmer switch or radio volume control, (which are themselves other potentiometer applications), the speed pot on a mobility scooter or power chair is a monument to the philosophy of keeping things simple. As a result, the speed potentiometer remains an inexpensive and easily replaced part.
Monster Scooter Parts carries speed pots for popular scooter and power chair brands including; Drive Medical, Invacare, Pride Mobility, Quickie, Rascal and others. In addition, we also offer an array of the knobs to fit the rabbit/turtle dial on your electric mobility vehicle.
