The modern aerospace industry, as well as the automotive sector, require highly-complex products with an extremely high proportion of electronic components and maximum safety requirements. This requires correspondingly complex development and production processes as well as sophisticated interdisciplinary expertise. Piher´s contact-less technology is based on robust, state-of-the-art and proven hall-effect technology that can withstand extreme environments.

Our PST, MTS and PSC series can provide reliable feedback for a number of aerospace applications, such as:

  • Valve position
  • Landing gear position
  • Pilot input controls
  • Lever position
  • Actuator position
  • Door position
  • Rudder position
  • Aileron position
  • Servo tab position
  • Flap / slat position
  • Elevator position
  • Wheel position
  • Throttle position
  • Fuel valve position
  • Pedal position
  • Drive by wire systems
  • UHF Radio controls
  • Fighter lighting controls
  • HUD aircraft control (brightness, intensity, manual reticle position, contrast).Electromechanical switches.
  • Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) camera gimbal and cradle angle of attack angle and position miniature sensors.

With millions of position sensors sold every year, we have the required experience to quickly adapt our sensors to the customer´s application or design a new custom sensor from scratch in a timely manner.
