    I need help. I have a potentiometer coil type which was burnt ( Use VAC direct ).
    I wish to replace with COSMOS potentiometer RV in the direct VAC, just to find out is it ok to do this way. Is COSMOS potentiometer can stand with AC100V input supply ?

    No matter what your application, using the pot tied to the line is always going to be a lethal shock hazard.

    What is your application? It may be that is something that can be done with a transformer, or with a device like a variac.
