The pin measures 3/4'' wide and is in mint condition. Below here is some background information from one of their websites:
''Clarostat Sensors & Controls is the leading U.S. manufacturer of panel-mount potentiometers (pots) and a quality U.S. manufacturer of custom photoelectric (Industrial) and optical switch (Commercial) solutions.''
''As the pioneer of wirewound and thick-film conductive plastic pots, we've developed an extensive array of standard, modular and customized variable resistor designs for a variety of applications. Clarostat offers a full selection of resistive elements in our potentiometer lines using conductive plastic, cermet, hot-molded carbon and wirewound resistive elements.''
''Clarostat specializes in custom applications of potentiometers. In fact, Clarostat presents the industry's widest array of mechanical, operational and electrical performance variations and options. These include: body size; power ratings; shaft and bushing diameters, lengths and styles; switch and terminal types; torques; detents; tapers; resistance values and tolerances. Our Mod Pot line alone allows more than one billion possible combinations of single, dual, triple and quad arrangements. Today, Clarostat manufactures and ships more than 15 million pots every year.''
''In addition to potentiometers, the company also produces a complete line of panel-mount rotary optical and mechanical encoders, offering state-of-the-art direct-to-digital alternatives for digital applications that otherwise must combine traditional analog panel pots with A/D converters. Rounding out Clarostat's product portfolio are trimmers, fixed resistors, dials and knobs, plus complete families of commercial and industrial photoelectric sensors. Recently, Clarostat introduced a new line of element products that appeal to an emerging market of applications that include speed controls, temperature controls, fuel cards, position sensors and countless other applications.''
