Heilind’s partnership with Piher expands the distributor’s offering of rugged sensing solutions, including contactless position sensors.

Heilind Electronics, a leading global distributor of electronic components, has added Piher Sensors & Controls to its growing list of Amphenol sensor franchises. As an authorized Piher distributor, Heilind will offer both standard and custom-engineered solutions for harsh environment applications.

A key part of Heilind’s Piher offering will be position sensors utilizing non-contacting sensing technology. Currently in stock at Heilind, these units provide fully magnetic Hall Effect contactless position feedback in through-shaft configurations. In addition to Hall Effect, touchless and inductive sensors, Heilind’s Piher portfolio will include position and speed sensors, printed electronics, potentiometers, seat belt sensors, encoders and HVAC sensors.

“We are proud to partner with Piher, who has over 60 years of experience developing both standard and custom sensor solutions,” said Glen MacGibbon, Vice President of Business Development - Sensors, Heilind Electronics. “Our customers will now have access to some of the most innovative rugged position products in the market, including the ability to customize.”

Piher complements Heilind’s other recent Amphenol sensor franchises, including All Sensors and SSI. Piher's products are used in HVAC (climate control), consumer appliance, industrial controls, automotive AFL (adaptive front lighting), off-highway vehicle, instrumentation, medical, power tool and hundreds of other human interface applications.
