The modern aerospace industry, as well as the automotive sector, require highly-complex products with an extremely high proportion of electronic components and maximum safety requirements. This requires correspondingly complex development and production processes as well as sophisticated interdisciplinary expertise. Piher´s contact-less technology is based on robust, state-of-the-art and proven hall-effect technology that can withstand extreme environments.

Our PST, MTS and PSC series can provide reliable feedback for a number of aerospace applications, such as:

  • Valve position
  • Landing gear position
  • Pilot input controls
  • Lever position
  • Actuator position
  • Door position
  • Rudder position
  • Aileron position
  • Servo tab position
  • Flap / slat position
  • Elevator position
  • Wheel position
  • Throttle position
  • Fuel valve position
  • Pedal position
  • Drive by wire systems
  • UHF Radio controls
  • Fighter lighting controls
  • HUD aircraft control (brightness, intensity, manual reticle position, contrast).Electromechanical switches.
  • Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) camera gimbal and cradle angle of attack angle and position miniature sensors.

Cockpit / Pilot input controls

  • Set Headubg Indicator / headin “Bug”
  • Ser VOR! & VOR2 heading / OBS setting
  • Adjust airspeed / altitude Indicator
  • Adjust barometrer reading
  • Set ADF Indicator and deading
  • Adjust radio / ADF frequencies
  • Set autopilot altitude & vertical speed

 

  • Flight control actuator.
  • Central thrust levers.
  • Feedback controls for stability augmentation and autopilot .
  • Throttle control.
  • Propeller lever control.
  • Fuel shutoff control.
  • Thrust reverser deployment/feedback/lockout
  • Steering sensor.
  • Nose wheel steering control.
  • Emergency landing fear control.
  • Emergency/parking brake control.
  • Gust lock control.
  • Emergency ram air turbine control.
  • Landing gear door control.
  • Flight surface control.
  • Arresting hook control.
  • Fuel management control.
  • Flap/slat control lever.
  • Yaw and rudder Pedal sensor.
  • High Lift, Spoiler, and Horizontal Stabilizer 
  • Thrust Reverser and Power Lever Angle (PLA)

With millions of position sensors sold every year, we have the required experience to quickly adapt our sensors to the customer´s application or design a new custom sensor from scratch in a timely manner.
