Design engineers of rugged vehicles want all the benefits of contactless rotary sensing (no wear and tear) without expensive overengineered solutions to precision.
They want enough accuracy plus stable performance over a long lifetime, despite environmental extremes.
- No tear/wear or mechanical contacts.
- Plug and play sensors: easy installation.
- Increased customer satisfaction through best results in throttle and other position sensors.

Leading-Edge Position Sensors For the most demanding environments Piher Sensing Systems is a leading innovator in advanced position sensing technologies that enable our clients to accurately measure and control rotational and linear movements.
We develop, manufacture and market custom and standard position sensors and controls that provide valuable real-time data needed to efficiently drive today’s vehicles and machinery.
Thick-film on ceramic elements are designed around customers’ unique assemblies. Conductive, resistive and dielectric films are selectively deposited in a cleam room by screen printing on ceramic substrates
Our market-leading thick-film technology can be used to deposit any combination of fixed resistors, switches, potentiometer tracks and conductors onto virtually any size, shape or ceramic form.
This versatility offers an enormous range of design possibilities at competitive prices, even in low batch quantities.
We’re known for the fine art of laser trimming, delivering the very low tolerances at very high volumes needed to keep pace with innovation in electronics.
Actually, we’re old masters of every aspect of the thick film printed ceramic substrates process, eliminating programme risk as we deliver around the world from our plants in Europe and China.
Piher`s flange mount gear tooth speed sensors have been designed to precisely calculate the speed and direction in demading enviroments such as vehicle’s transmission.

This is intended as a glimpse into Amphenol’s capabilities and standard catalog. Due to the large number of parts, configurations, specifications and details, only a small portion of Amphenol’s full leading-edge portfolio can be presented in this format.
Inductive position sensor for absolute rotary or linear motion sensing in automotive, off-highway, industrial, medical and consumer applications.
It uses the physical principles of induction in a wire loop and eddy currents to detect the position of a solid metallic structure that is sliding or rotating above a set of coils consisting of one transmitter coil and two receiver coils.
The coils are printed as copper traces on a printed circuit board (PCB) and arranged such that the transmitter coil induces a secondary voltage in the receiver coils that depends on the position of the metallic target above the coils.
The absolute angle measurement provides instant feedback of the metallic target's angular position with a resolution of up to 12 bit.
