hi i recently was given a bunch of these pre soldered sliding potentiometer boards and am wondering how to interface them with the arduino the pins are as follow: vcc, gnd, IN, A-, A0 and has 5 of them all wired together
I don't think that's enough information for people to help. Have you got any more?
Maybe photos would help.
Do you realise that we can't see whatever it is that you're looking at? So saying "these" anything isn't going to tell us much.
