The Piher MTS-360 is an SMD Rotary Position Sensor. This Contactless Sensor uses a new technology which combines a through-shaft design with 360º absolute position feedback. The sensor has an ultra miniature size of 6mm x 17mm x 18mm, making it the industry's smallest full-featured rotary sensor. The MTS-360 from Piher features Hall effect technology, an offset through-hole to accommodate automated SMD assembly, and a 4mm double D shaft. The Contactless Sensor is rated for use at -40ºC to +150ºC and can operate up to 300 RPM.
The PSC-360 Series from Piher is a vertical Hall-effect magnetic rotary sensor. The Contactless Sensor is programmable and features a unique switch function not offered with other 360º absolute position sensors. The permanent magnet is the only moving part, providing a mechanical life cycle of up to 50 million cycles. The completely sealed IP67 rated Piher PSC-360 Sensor, ideal for harsh environments, also offers high temperature performance at -40ºC to +150ºC. The PSC-360U model features a panel mount package fore easy bush mounting.
Piher's 10mm Carbon Potentiometer features a carbon resistive element and polyester substrate in a dust proof enclosure with life up to 10,000 cycles. In standard linear taper Piher's PT-10 series is rated at 0/15W at 50°C with an electrical rotation of 220° ±20°.
