Multiturn sensors

Sealed and featuring a clutch function, three different MT-5 models are available according to their fixation means. The product can be easily customised to meet customer´s requirements.

Absolute position is mechanically stored so there is no need of active electronics thus avoiding problems such as memory being lost by current  shortages.
In automobile seat applications the seat may be linearly movable, either manually or automatically via electromechanical means, on an associated track assembly. A sensor may provide a signal representative of the linear position of the seat on the track for a variety of purposes, e.g. to control deployment or the force of an air bag, to feedback the motor position of the seat in connection with a seat position memory feature, etc.

The MT-150 has been initially designed for this application, allowing 150 turns mechanical travel, being sealed and featuring a clutch function at end stops. Absolute position is mechanically stored so there is no need of active electronics thus avoiding problems such as memory being lost by current  shortages.
Three slightly different models are available depending on the car model they are to be placed in. The product is through hole so that the horizontal shaft can pass though it. The shaft is moved by a motor attached to it. The whole mechanical movement allowed is 5 turns of the axis. This movement is mechanically memorised so that the electronics can always return the position to a previously recorded state.

Other typical applications:

· Recliner Position sensor
· Head Restraint Position sensor
· Lumbar Position sensor
· Seat Linear Memory Position Sensor (MT-150)
