Simulating a 10K Pot

Hi!

I am trying to simulate a 10K Pot with expressions to be able to measure the resistor-values of each pin to the wiper.

Shouldn't the setup show a linear behavior with increasing R1val?

Thank you!

Hi LG,

You simulation won't work because you have not used the right syntax to set up your component values and to define a parameter.

You don't need to do it that way anyway.

Please read the (hard to find) CL blogumentation on:

https://www.circuitlab.com/blog/2013/10/01/circuit-parameters-to-make-schematics-smarter/

I haven't gone back and used parameters in my original simulations so I don't have an example showing exactly how to do your circuit using them but again you don't have to use them.

Have a look at these simulations to see how to use the CL sweep features to sweep the pot slider position in a simulation:
