I have here 10 alpha b10k potentiometers that look like this (link to datasheet):http://docs.google.com/fileview?id=0B5QX_JA5-u2lYTRlM2Y4Y2UtNWVlNS00OGUwLTk5ODUtNDUzY2I4YzJkZTRh&hl=en
with the other potentiometers I've been using (rotary pots), I am used to 3 wires (ground, 5v, control)
these sliders however are confusing me greatly as they have 4 places to connect wires. I have been able to hook them up, but they display a limited range, get very hot, and begin to smell like burning. Can someone help guide me here? I need to know which wires go where?
