PS-15 & PSX-15 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.
