Interiors

Regarding potentiometer production we have many years of experience in the following sectors:

  • Construction design
  • Laser-beam conditioning
  • Lights
  • Painting


This fully developed technology in combination with innovative application solutions is used in vehicle interiors of modern cars.
Potentiometric linear sensors are suited for the following systems:

  • Operating cylinders
  • Actuators
  • Exhaust gas recirculation


Modern screen printing and laser technologies are the basis for thick-film potentiometers and pressure sensors.
Moreover, we supply the automotive industry with potentiometric sensor elements used in fuel level detection.



Electromechanical products

Controls – attractive interfaces between man and machine
The sensitive control given by the operator interface is matched by outstanding functionality and good tactile response.
Easy sliders or knobs as well as the multifunctional control element make it ideal for use in interiors of vehicles and machinery.
AB Elektronik has suitable competence areas of in-house expertise when it comes to coordinating fundamental technology and precise applications.

Example

Excellent thick-film furnishing

 
 

MMI – 3-in-1-Interface

Modern vehicles and automated systems offer many functions requiring manual control, often interfacing with a computer screen.

Replacing multiple controls with the MMI saves space, and enhances the design of modern control panels. LED-illuminated MMI products from AB Elektronik are styled to ensure a sleek modern appearance and a satisfying haptic experience, enhancing operator confidence and safety. Over long periods, users find that the highly tactile MMI reduces fatigue levels.
