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 rugged 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.
  • Nozzle position.
  • Door position.
  • Rudder position.
  • Aileron position.
  • Servo tab position.
  • Flap / slat / stabilize, position.
  • Elevator position.
  • Wheel position.
  • Throttle position.
  • Fuel valve position.
  • Pedal position.
  • Drive by wire systems.
  • UHF Radio controls.
  • Fighter lighting controls.
  • Landing gear steering sensor.
  • 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.
  • eVTOL cabin seats, liners, and window position 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.
