Piher sensing systems - custom potentiometers and position sensors

Printed Resistors PCB / Thick Film

PIHER Printed Circuit Resistors, are thick-film elements designed to be printed on a wide range of substrates. These range from ceramic to most PCB materials  allowing the elimination of resistor, jumper wire, gold on contacts, silver-conductive ink, electro-mechanical switches, insertion problems and associated costs.

This PIHER market-leading thick-film technology can be used to deposit any combination of embedded fixed resistors, potentiometer carbon tracks and conductors in virtually any size, shape, form and accuracy. Thereby offering an enormous  range of design possibilities at competitive prices even for low batches.

The resistive values can be individually laser trimmed to obtain very accurate tolerances.

PIHER’s PCR technology is ideal for voltage-divider calibration and resistor family matching. In these cases PIHER offers high precision voltage ratios between key points of the circuit.
Furthermore, in those applications where the printed variable resistor or potentiometer is linked to an additional external mechanism, PIHER can design, manufacture and supply the wiper interface according to customers´ requirements.

Our extended-life variable resitors and can operate in harsh enviroments without requiring periodic replacement being a low cost alternative to magnetic encoder modules, magnetic encoder chips, magnetic rotary encoders, magnetic linear encoders and magnetic ring encoders, plus optical linear encoders and optical angle encoders.
