Japanese translation:トリマー・ポテンショメーター
Explanation:
I agree completely with mkobayashi's
explanation, but as you specifially
mention in the "context" the word
trimmer, this should probably also be
included if you are going to go with
an "all katakana" translation. The meaning of the word "trimmer" here is
equivalent to "adjustable". Hope this is helpful. Haslov
PS. mkobayashi should be given credit, as s/he answered first.

ポテンショメーター(POT)


Explanation:
I think you mean "potentiometer"

This is a kind of 可変抵抗器 (kahenteikouki). You use it to control volume on a radio for instance. The trimmer potentiometer is also an adjustable resistor, but once set to the right value, it remains at that value.
