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.

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.

In-house R&D interdisciplinary teams dive deep to help you solve complex challenges thanks to over 60 years of experience and leadership in tried and tested technologies.

Custom product design packaging can be easily provided to meet any form, fit and function including the choice of wire harness and interface connector.

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.

Custom touchless magnetic Hall effect variable air gap angle/position sensor maintains stable electrical output and specified linearity on mobile shafts despite radial and axial movements of over +/- 5mm.
