Position Sensors From KYOCERA AVX Components (Werne)
KYOCERA AVX (Werne) has been developing and producing position sensors since 1990. Our company holds a large number of patents as well as many years’ experience in the field of non-contact technologies. This enables us to tailor the product properties to the respective application. Interfaces to analog, PWM, PSI5, SENT, CAN, LIN and other protocols are possible.
- Proprietary technologies
- Volume application in passenger cars and commercial vehicles
- Shorter runs for special vehicles and agricultural applications
The individual design of position sensors is based on selection of the optimum technology for the application, in combination with a suitable mechanical interface. Based on our specially developed advanced overmoulding techniques, we use the outstanding properties of thermoplastics and thermosets to offer our customers sophisticated enclosure solutions for assemblies with integrated sensors.
Position sensors differ fundamentally between rotary and linear sensors, and within these classes in terms of the mechanical interface required and the packaging.

Typical applications for our products:
Clutch detection, damper position, cylinder position, height sensor. Combined with a linkage, the angle sensor with the detection of the chassis level on the vehicle serves for headlamp levelling or control of the active chassis. Other applications connected to a linkage (e.g. clutch and brake pedals) can also use the HSS. EGR, thermal management, throttle valve sensor, swirl valve sensor, lever position, pedal, parking lock sensor, neutral gear detection sensor, transmission with start / stop function, shift fork position sensor detects the linear position of a permanent magnet on the shift fork in dual clutch transmissions, clutch position, brake cylinder position, steering actuator (front + rear), lift: pneumatic cylinder in height-adjustable chassis, dampers
Our sensors support the focal points of future mobility:
Emission reduction, E-mobility, Energy efficiency
