#190142 - show me such
Responding to: Andy Neil's previous message
I've never seen a potentiometer specsheet or whatever other material may there be, which would go beyond the power specs and max voltage. They invariantly assume the potentiometer is used as a voltage divider with no load on the wiper.

And, of course, I doubt any manufacturer would say anything beyond this unless you buy his potentiometers by trucks.
