Piher Sensing Systems Named a 2023 Best of Sensors Awards Finalist

Tudela, Spain, May 23, 2023 – Piher Sensing Systems, specialty manufacturer of contactless and contacting position sensors, announces it has been named a finalist in the Industrial Sensors category of the 2023 Best of Sensors Awards for Inductive Arc Position Sensor.

The awards program is presented by Sensors Converge and Fierce Electronics and honors the best in sensor technologies and the sensor ecosystem, people and companies.

“This recognition highlights the hard work and exceptional contributions of our entire team,” said Mr. Ignacio Alava, the Engineering Director of Piher Sensing Systems. “We are proud to be considered among the industry’s finest.”

Real time tracking and control of industrial components such as such as robotic arms, conveyor systems, and actuators and other movable parts is crucial for ensuring optimal motion control, efficiency and safety.

We just released our PSAI series of Inductive Arc Position Sensors that have been conceived for heavy-duty applications. Inductive sensors do not depend on magnets but detect the position of a solid metallic target that can easily be installed into the existing machinery structure.

Featuring virtually unlimited mechanical life, excellent accuracy, IP67 and IP69K sealing and high temperature tolerance, Piher’s Arc Position Sensors are a ready-to-go robust and precise solution for the most demanding working conditions.

Charlene Soucy, Senior Director, Technology – Sensors & Electronics said, “The innovation this year surpassed other years with new, innovative technologies as well as technologists doing groundbreaking work in the field of design engineering. We congratulate the finalists on their accomplishments and look forward to seeing who the judges select as the best next month.”

Submissions were judged based on the value to the marketplace, the impact of the problems it solves or issues it addresses and the uniqueness of the design.
