Travel range: at 0 to 100 V, tolerance ±20 %. The values refer to the free component and can be lower when glued on.

Blocking force: at 0 to 100 V.

Electrical capacitance: Tolerance ±20 %, measured at 1 Vpp, 1 kHz, RT.Axial resonant frequency: measured at 1 Vpp, unloaded, unclamped. The value is halved for unilateral clamping. Lateral resonant frequencies can be lower than the axial ones, depending on the installation situation.

Piezo ceramic type: PIC252.

Standard connections: Solderable contacts. For optional PTFE-insulated wire leads, 100 mm, AWG 32, Ø 0.49 mm, change order number extension to 1 (e.g. PL022.31).

Operating voltage: -20 to 100 V.

Operating temperature range: -40 to 150 °C.

Recommended preload for dynamic operation: 15 MPa.

Maximum preload for constant force: 30 MPa.
