Airbags have been designed to help protect adults in a moderate to severe frontal collision. To do this, the passenger’s front airbag is quite large, and it can inflate with enough force to cause very serious injuries.
There are conditions where the automatic shut off feature will not completely insure safety (seat too far forward, small child in a car seat), there could be a need to manually disarm the passeger sode airbag.
Even though the vehicle may include an advanced front airbag system that automatically turns the passenger’s front airbag off, all manufacturers offer a manual cutoff system for an additional measure of safety.
These manual systems are typically activated or deactivated by turning them using the vehicle´s ignition key.
Piher has developed a rotary switch that seamlessly adapts to these systems and reliably actuates the transition between the “on” and “off” states.
Potentiometer for appliances. Detented control mechanism.
Multifunction potentiometer - encoder - switch for appliances.
The DCM-PTT potentiometer offers sturdiness, performance and adaptability where frequent human-machine-interface adjustment is required.
Its robust design allows for employment of different mechanisms, such as a selecting a program/function in your dishwasher or setting the temperature of a cooktop.
Different ouptput choices are available (incremental encoder-pulse, rotary switch, absolute-analog potentiometer) and safety measures such as push-to-turn.
Detent number, connectors, mounting flanges, tact switch function and other features can be studied upon request.
Typical applications include consumer electronics, ovens and other kitchen appliances, white and brown goods, automotive HVACR and personal care control panels.
This datasheet shows you the basics of this potentiometer that is quite versatile.

Piher’s High Speed Inductive Position Sensor are used by hybrid/electric vehicles powertrain systems to feedback the angular position, direction and speed of the rotor shaft to optimize control of the motor inverter.
The position sensor can be mounted on the same shaft as the electric machine rotor and sensing its position accurately is critical in order to drive the motor optimally by the vehicle’s control unit.
This solution provides high speed rotary motion sensing with a robust design against external magnetic interference fields generated from sources such as electric motors.
It uses the physical principles of induction in a wire loop and eddy currents to detect the position of a solid metallic structure that is sliding or rotating above a set of coils consisting of one transmitter coil and two receiver coils.
Custom product design packaging can be provided to meet any form, fit and function including the choice of wire harness and interface connector.

The MTS-360 provides a true breakthrough in contactless sensor technology by combining a through-shaft design with 360º absolute position feedback in an ultra miniature size. The result is the smallest fully featured rotary sensor on the market with reliability up to 50 million cycles.
With its tiny size, engineers can now integrate a fully featured rotary sensor directly on their PCB without the packaging issues that typically accompany encoders or other absolute position devices. The exceptionally low profile fits easily in places that were previously too small for pre-packaged rotary sensors.
This ultra-miniature Rotary Position Sensor is ideal in optical imaging stabilization and precision biomedical devices, optical zoom devices, consumer electronics, instrumentation, HVAC systems, automotive control systems, marine controls, fork lift trucks, farm equipment, cranes, low speed motor feedback, valve position sensors and robotic and automation feedback system.
Designed with the sensor directly mounted onto a PCB, the innovative MTS-360 Sensor/PCB Combo package allows engineers to easily mount a fully featured rotary sensor without first having to design a printed circuit board for the sensor. The result is time-savings and convenience.
The MTS-360 Sensor/PCB assembly is available with or without 2.54 mm pitch connector, both easily secured with standard M3 screws. The entire assembly measures just 35mm wide by 36mm long, allowing for applications with tight packaging constraints.
The new MTS-360PCB Mechanical Mount sensor model incorporates all the breakthrough sensor technology performance features of the original MTS-360 by merging a through-shaft design with 360º absolute position feedback in a small size package. The result is an extremely small fully featured rotary sensor with reliability up to 50 million cycles. The MTS-360 relies on patented Hall effect technology to enable true non-contacting through-hole shaft sensing now using a simple three eared mounting. The standard model features a 4mm double D-flat through-hole and (3) slotted mounting holes allowing final rotational adjustment at assembly.
