P-878 DuraAct Power Patch Transducer

High Efficiency and Robust

PI P-878
Useable as actuator, sensor or energy generator
Low voltages to 120 V
Compact design
Individual solutions

Patch transducer

Functionality as actuator and sensor component. Nominal operating voltages of -20 to 120 V. Power generation for self-sufficient systems possible up to the milliwatt range. Can also be applied to curved surfaces.

In longitudinal direction, the DuraAct Power uses the high-efficiency d33 effect

 

Robust, cost-effective design

Laminated structure consisting of PICMA® multilayer piezo element, electrodes and polymer materials. Manufactured with bubble-free injection method. The polymer coating simultaneously serves as electrical insulation and as mechanical preload, which makes the DuraAct bendable

 

Custom DuraAct patch transducers

  • Flexible choice of size
  • Variable design of the electrical connections
  • Combined actuator / sensor applications, even with several active piezoceramic layers
  • Arrays

 

Fields of application

Industry and research. Can also be applied to curved surfaces or used for integration in structures. For adaptive systems, energy harvesting, structural health monitoring
