Motorized potentiometers are useful when you need the ability to jump to preset positions or when you want physical feedback from virtual controllers. There are also a variety of unconventional uses for these potentiometers such as pulsing the motor to provide haptic feedback or just using it as a linear actuator for super light-duty robotics.

Note: We have recently uncovered the correct datasheet for this part and, as many of you had already suspected, this is not a linear potentiometer. This is an audio taper pot with a "15A" profile, you can see a chart of this taper below.
