The small radio type rotary IEC Potentiometer or Rheostat is a general purpose device for electrical or electronic experiments. It is mounted in a strong transparent container as used in the excellent EM1763-001 IEC Electricity Kit, with 4mm sockets for connection.

IEC Potentiometers are either wire wound or carbon track depending on the resistance value.
Low value resistance potentiometers are wire-wound and can dissipate about 3 watts.
Values can be 20, 50, 100, 1000 or 10,000 ohms.

Higher resistance values are carbon track potentiometers and can dissipate about 0.5 watts.
Values can be 25,000, 50,000 or 100,000 ohms.

It is normal for the higher value resistance devices to carry a much lower current than the low resistance devices because the high resistance naturally limits the current to a small value.
