DETENT CONFIGURATIONS EXAMPLES
This innovative PT´s with detents
family has been specifically developed
to allow the integration of otherwise
large and expensive external
mechanisms into the body of the PAM P1I P1F P02 P03
majority of the 10 & 15 mm.
PS/PT/PTC potentiometer series thus
allowing a high range of configurations:
special tapers, torque, tolerances,
linearity, cut track, etc.
This detent design not only adds a P04 P05 P06 P07 P08
"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 customer´s request. P09 P10 P16
Detent number and positions can be
made or fitted to the customer needs
Relative detent positions A A= 26º A
along the total mechanical PID PFD

Unless otherwise Wiper position
specified the detents position
are evenly spaced

as reference) B B B

NOTES FOR DETENTED VERSIONS:
(1) Detents not available for V05 mounting. (5) Detent torque can vary from 1.2 to 2.5 times the standard
These cases are studied individually.
(2) For more than 10 detents versions please contact your (6) Please consult your nearest Piher supplier if unique
nearest PIHER authorised distributor. non-overlapping values at each detent position or
LOG/ALOG tapers are required.
(3) Standard mechanical life is 500 cycles.
(7) Different output voltage values can be matched at each
(4) Long life versions are available under request and have the detent position (upon request).

potentiometer technology and Improved repeatability
With its exacting control capabilities, By combining the constant value zones with the detents, engineers
can align the same voltage values with each of the detent stops
our 10mm and 15mm potentiometers when rotating the control both forward and backward.
series are well suited for many
consumer applications such as This provides clear mechanical positions that are not only repeatable,
ovens, ranges, dishwashers, lighting but perfectly aligned electrical outputs at each of the (detent) angles.
(dimmers), power hand tools, Piher´s detents also prevent output values from changing due to
washing machines and HVAC vibration or accidental rotor movements, furthering reliable control
