TheHoboInYourRoom Posted October 24, 2020 Share Posted October 24, 2020 (edited) I'm wanting to make a custom pair of Atari paddles, and I'm confused by a detail of the controller schematics (excerpt posted below). The pots in the paddle circuits are drawn with small arrows next to the wipers, circled in red. The arrows point in the direction of lower resistance, but I don't know what meaning they're supposed to convey. Does lower resistance correspond to clockwise or counterclockwise rotation? EDIT: Ah, I didn't look hard enough. A search for "clockwise" in this forum suggests that clockwise rotation lowers the resistance.
