The 'Naked Bell Assembly' is a finger-tip throttle assembly (speed control mechanism) using the 50 degree pot. It has a spring return to zero and is supplied with a mounting bracket and a vinyl-capped lever. The spring is light operation to minimize finger strain from continuous pressure on an over-strength spring, yet is still strong enough to ensure reliable operation. The lever can safely be bent if a different shape is needed. This feature means that if the lever gets accidentally bent, it can be easily re-shaped!
The mechanism is also quite suitable for use as a position sensor, for instance in a foot operated pedal, where the lever can be operated by an extension of the foot pedal.
It should also be possible to use this mechanism on a Bowden cable for remote operation.
