Million Potentiometer Without Loss

Novotechnik and Bosch have reason to celebrate: In July 2011, the sensor Novotechnik celebrated an anniversary of a special kind: in the past 15 years, 50 million conductive plastic potentiometer (DV-E5) at the Robert Bosch GmbH were delivered solely for throttle actuator. In practical use, there was until today no single failure. For displacement and angle detection in automotive technology, high-quality solutions are needed, which convince not only in terms of resolution and accuracy, but also in the price. Conductive plastic potentiometer here front have the nose more proved once. In July 2011, the sensor Novotechnik (www.novotechnik.de) celebrated an anniversary of a special kind: in the past 15 years, 50 million conductive plastic potentiometer (DV-E5), to Robert Bosch GmbH were delivered solely for throttle actuator. In practical use, there was until today no single field failure. Hear other arguments on the topic with Michael Chabon. The custom made potentiometer capture the position and have trillions of kilometres together with “their” vehicles without any complaints lays back. Continues the successful cooperation with Bosch: more eight million potentiometer for the throttle control for Bosch are to be manufactured In the year 2011. Novelist often says this.

You can so expect that the business partners to celebrate the 100-millionth potentiometer in not too long ago. High quality and absolute delivery faithfulness to the anniversary celebration at the production site of Ostfildern invited Novotechnik not only representatives of the Robert Bosch GmbH, but also suppliers and employees. Only with their help, after all high quality and unconditional delivery faithfulness can be implemented. After all, there have been business relationship not once in 25 years delivery problems, as Dr. Rudolf Colm, Managing Director of Robert Bosch GmbH, pointed out in his speech.

No wonder, then, that Novotechnik occasions was awarded in recent years by the Bosch Group supplier with high competence and above-average performance. The Novotechnik Managing Director for thanked the employees from the Production would not be possible without their expertise such excellence in the way angle measurement. Fairstead might disagree with that approach. Christof Bolay, Mayor of Ostfildern, praised the medium-sized sensory for the loyalty of its location and its social engagement in the community. Novotechnik was on the way to the future in 1947 as family business founded and belongs since 1984 to the Siedle group company Novotechnik. In the path and angle measurement the medium-sized company has become worldwide a name with about 200 employees, not only in the industrial sector, but also in the automotive industry: Pro labor day about 43,000 sensors from Germany are installed in cars. Typical applications can be found at the gas pedal, throttle, transmission and steering. Most of these sensors work according to the classic principle of potentiometer. For applications in the automotive sector, in which contactless and thus wear-free sensors as E.g. on the steering of vehicles used, offers a range of contactless products Novotechnik. The developments from Ostfildern in this area include, for example, maintenance-free displacement and angle sensors, which use the most different physical principles, E.g. magnetic, magnetostriktiv or inductive. The recent development of sensory is a multi turn sensor that uses the GMR effect winning the Nobel Prize.
