Re: Making Pots More Accurate

I always had the impression that SIDs are male anyways, while teebes and TRs are female to my concetion...

Yep, it actualy decreases the need of the full resistor value. You can calculate this by some simple electronics calculations:

T = R*C
T = 470K * 1000pF (the capacity is taken from the original datasheet)
T = 0,47m

Then you use the formula to get the new capacity depending on your resistor: (lets take 200k for example)
C = T / R
C = 0,47m / 200k
C = 2,35 nF   ( but they are not possible to get, so 100K and 4,7nF are just fine, or you would have to use 2 x 4,7nF and put them in a row )

Thats for your education!!

I tryed to solder 4,7nf and 100k pots, but the pots are not really 100k  (92/95k) so I need to calculate the good value for the capacitor to make the pots more accurate.
