DCM-PT15 detented potentiometer.

The combination of the well-known PT15/PTC15/PS15 control potentiometers with a Detent Control Mechanism (DCM) affords the appliance designer the possibility to solder the potentiometer onto the Control PCB assembly and then, in a second operation, assemble the DCM over it. This removes the need to build Detents into the User front panel of the appliance, simplifying, and significantly reducing the total cost of the solution.

The detent torque can be modified according to Customer requirements (depending on the input dial’s diameter, etc) as can the number and position of the detents.

Features
  • High & low torque detents can be freely mixed
  • Cut track option (initial / final)
  • Detents configurable to specific positions in complex tapers.
  • Designed for PT15V or PS15 (SMD)

Hall Effect non contact sensor.

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.

Potentiometers with detents

This 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.

Strong and weak detents can be mixed as per cutomer´s request.

- Replacement for:
    • Existing customer detent mechanisms.
    •  Multi-pole switches.
    •  3 or 4-bit absolute encoders (connecting to microprocessor analogue input).
- Analogue signal presets.
- Temperature control settings.
- Relay Timers.

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.
As  previously highlighted, this family is indispensable wherever both cost and space saving reductions are important, or where a series of fixed positions along the potentiometer travel are required.

Printed PCB variable resistors

Printed Resistors PCB are thick-film resistive ink elements designed around customers’ unique assemblies. PIHER’s thick film inks can be printed on a wide range of substrates — from high temperature ceramics to common PCB materials. 

Our market-leading thick-film technology can be used to deposit any combination of fixed resistors, switches, sensors, potentiometer tracks and conductors onto virtually any size, shape or PCB form. This versatility offers an enormous range of design possibilities at 
competitive prices,even in 
low batch quantities.

Once screened and cured, these resistive tracks can be individually laser trimmed to obtain very accurate tolerances in high volume. 

We also offer custom wiper (contact) assemblies as standard products or we can design and manufacture according to customers´ bespoke design requirements.


This technology is ideal for three-wire voltage-divider (potentiometer) designs. Here, we offer in-process calibration and resistive (ohmic) process control, allowing for tight matching within lots and high precision voltage ratios between key points in the circuit.

15mm SMD potentiometer / sensor.

This sensor offers a new surface mountable solution for detecting changes in angle and position and converting them into a highly reliable voltage output. The sensor can be processed by standard automated placement equipment and reflow (or lead-free reflow) soldered. For applications where rotor angle is critical, locating pins are available. 

The PS15 Series is available with seven different rotor designs and 15 shaft styles. This offering allows Piher to configure a custom sensing solution for virtually any control or position feedback requirement.  The result is a customized sensor that maximizes board density, reduces weight and eases assembly while achieving the engineer’s critical sensor design goals for the application. 

A wide range of options, including up to 38 detents, allows further customization.  Detents not only add a crisp "click" sensation for each position without affecting the original sensor specification or performance, but also offer significant savings in both cost and space; and are particularly advantageous in industrial and domestic power tool applications to prevent accidental movement.
