Reading Potentiometer with Arduino


Potentiometer is an another resistor whose resistance value or the value of its resistance can be changed according to our needs. With Arduino, we can see how the value generated by a potentiometer at certain positions. Then we can manipulate to suit our needs.

In this labs we will make a simple test that turned LED with a resistance value is changed by a potentiometer.

Tools needed :

1x Arduino

1x Breadboard
1x Potensiometer
1x Led
5x  Jumper cable

insert code bellow :


int potPin = 2;    // nilai inputan analog pada pin2
int ledPin = 13;   // select the pin for the LED (default arduino)
int val = 0;       // nilai resistansi awal

void setup() {
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);  // declare the ledPin as an OUTPUT

void loop() {
  val = analogRead(potPin);    // read the value from the sensor
  digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);  // turn the ledPin on
  delay(val);                  // stop the program for some time
  digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);   // turn the ledPin off
  delay(val);                  // stop the program for some time
