Ultrasonic Piezo Elements – Ultrasound Transducer, Ultrasound Transmitter, Ultrasound Nebulizer
Ultrasonic transducers operate at extremely high frequencies to create vibratory ultrasonic piezo effects. Ultrasonic piezoelectric transducers and transmitters work by converting an applied electrical charge (AC voltage) into a mechanical vibration movement. Ultrasonic piezos oscillate extremely rapidly at very high frequencies, allowing them to be used in motor and cleaning applications. In medical applications, ultrasound nebulizers are utilized to atomize fluids and medication into micron size aerosols to be inhaled. The powerful piezoceramic vibratory effects delivered by ultrasonic transducers, ultrasound transmitters, and ultrasound nebulizers are an extremely efficient and precise source of mechanical energy and controlled movement. Piezo Direct delivers ultrasonic piezo elements that can be customized to your specific performance requirements.
Piezo Transducers and Piezo Transmitters
For nonultrasonic applications, custom piezo transducers and piezo transmitters can convert one form of energy into another, such as the transfer of a mechanical input to an electrical output and vice versa. The piezoelectric transducer converts mechanical changes into an electrical signal, then uses that electrical input to perform necessary mechanical changes and make fine adjustments. Piezo transmitters can convert any form of pressure or mechanical stress into electrical energy, and also translate that electrical signal into physical movement. Piezo Direct offers fully custom piezo transducers and piezo transmitters for measuring and sensing applications, such as automotive sensors, piezoelectric energy harvesting, and much more.
Piezo sensors convert mechanical energy to electrical energy by detecting and capturing physical changes in the environment and translating them into measurable electrical outputs. Piezoelectric sensors are mostly used to measure vibrations, acceleration, strain, force, and movement, such as in microphones, instrument pickups and amplification, lighters, surgical equipment, flow measurement, automotive sensors, accelerometers, and much more. As with all other products, piezoelectric ceramic sensors by Piezo Direct are fully customizable in shape, size, and performance.
Piezo actuators convert electrical energy to mechanical energy. In contrast to piezo sensors, piezo actuators utilize the inverse piezo effect to generate physical displacement in response to an electrical input. When an electrical voltage is applied to a piezoceramic actuator, the piezo actuator will deform and generate precisely controlled physical displacement. Piezo stack actuators create a multiplicative effect of each piezo element in the stack and generate linear displacement proportional to the height of the piezo stack. The physical response of piezo actuators can be seen in alarms, printers, fine machinery, fuel injectors, valve and pump control, and dosing and medical equipment. Piezo actuators have very low energy consumption, high force generation and load capabilities, and can operate in vacuum and cryogenic environments. Piezo Direct offers low cost piezo actuators with very fast response times that can be customized to achieve a certain voltage and stroke.
