Potentiometers with detents

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 resistors

Printed PCB 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.

ST-15 Endless rotation 15mm potentiometer/sensor

ST-15 Endless rotation 15mm potentiometer/sensor

The Model ST-15 offers engineers an endless rotation version of the popular PT-15 rotary potentiometer. This new 360º 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 7 different rotor designs and 15 standard shaft styles.

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 340º 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 feedback requirement can be configured using the PT-15s wide range of standard features. Other interesting optional features include flame-retardant plastics (meets UL Standard 94 V0), detents, rotors and shafts, long cycle life, SMT mounting and custom electrical angles.

Variable air gap touchless sensor

Variable air gap touchless sensor

Custom touchless magnetic Hall effect variable air gap angle/position sensor maintains stable electrical output and specified linearity on mobile shafts despite radial and axial movements of over +/- 5mm.

This sensor will deliver the same level of precision and stability throughout its life as the first day it was installed -despite extremes of vibration, shock, temperature and contamination.

A round or arc magnet (where 360º rotation angle is unnecessary) is attached to rotating parts of kit, such as boom loaders, skid steer buckets and hitch arms, and the electronics module to the chassis (or vice versa). As an absolute sensor it will not loose the values even after a power failure.
