Piher sensing systems - custom potentiometers and position sensors

Medical - Mobility

With the increased use of electronics in medical equipment, access to the best health care has been improved for more people. At the same time, safety and cost concerns and have raised including telemedicine and IOT (The internet of things).
Piher sensors and controls are succesfully providing responsive operation, compatibility with many existing controllers, and helping meet faster the specifications required by the most demanding regulations.

Example applications for Piher sensors, PCB resistors and control potentiometers in the medical and mobility fields are:
