Preh declared that it has delivered the 10 millionth throttle position sensor to automobile giant Hitachi. The device is already being deployed by General Motors.
The product is designed and manufactured in four different version at company headquarters in Bad Neustadt. The nucleus is embedded into the circuit board with a thick film technology. Its glassy carbon content makes it resistant to rough use under harsh conditions.
The metal particles are embedded into a finished encasing. According to Armin-Peter Six, who is in charge of the assembly plant at Preh, automated production of the systems make them cost efficient, increasing quality. The thick film technology also makes the product very tough so that it can be deployed easily in harsh environments. The Hall based product is dependable and economical.
