6mm carbon resistive element potentiometer.
IP54 protection according to IEC 60529.
Polyester substrate.

Also upon request:
• Wiper positioned at initial, 50% or fully clockwise.
• Supplied in magazines for automatic insertion.
• Long life model (10K cycles).
• Housing available in self extinguishable plastic (UL94V0).
• SMD version available (see PS-6 datasheet).
• Mechanical detents.

This innovative product family has been specifically developed to allow the integration of otherwise large and expensive external mechanisms into the body of the majority of the 6, 10 & 15 mm potentiometer series thus allowing a high range of configurations: special tapers, tolerances, linearity, cut track, etc.

This detent design not only adds a "click" sensation of position, but also offers enormous savings in both cost and space for any given application.

PT´s with detents also lend themselves perfectly to Industrial and Domestic Power Tool applications
where the detents prevent accidental movement of the potentiometer under vibration.

If high torque detents are required please see our Detent Control Mechanism (DCM) series datasheets.
Strong and weak detents (stop positions) can be mixed as per cutomer´s request.

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 Model STS-15 offers engineers an endless rotation SMD version of the popular PT-15 rotary control. This 360° version adds endless clockwise (CW or CCW) rotation as a part of the current features of the PT-15s already highly configurable mechanical and electrical specifications. That means a wide variety of off-the-shelf mounting methods, custom ohmic (resistance) values, tight linearity performance, along with the six different rotor designs.


This potentiometer offers product designers the flexibility of allowing users full rotational access across the normal stops that have, up to now, limited mechanical rotation. With this design feature, engineers can now design product command features over a 340° range (active electrical travel).


For maximum design versatility, the endless rotation feature can be combined upon request with detents to provide users tactile feedback on each setting and selection – with up to 51 unique detent positions. Virtually any appliance rotary control requirement can be configured using the PT-15’s wide range of standard features. Other interesting optional features include stop positions (detents), a variety of rotors, long life and custom electrical angles.


Engineered to serve as a highly cost-effective control potentiometer for most consumer applications such as ovens, ranges, dishwashers, power hand tools, washing machines and HVAC systems, it also can fit many automotive convenience electronic
applications.

This sensor provides a perfect fit for preferential use in space constraint applications.

Despite its lightweight and miniature size of only 21mm., this hall effect sensor delivers high performance with up to 360º electrical angle (without dead zone), 12bit resolution, extended life and EMI & ESD protection.

The MSC-360 can easily be tailored to customers' needs providing value at the lowest cost even for the most demanding environments.
