PI.jpgA brochure titled “DuraAct — Piezoelectric Patch Transducers for Industry and Research” is available in print and in pdf from PI (Physik Instrumente) LP. The 16-page document includes a description of the P-876 DuraAct patch transducers, which offer the functionality of piezoceramic materials as sensors and actuators as well as for electrical charge generation and storage. It notes that they are made of highly formable ceramics and can be applied to curved surfaces. Application examples include high-dynamics actuators, adaptive systems, vibration and noise cancellation, and energy harvesting. The E-413 compact piezo amplifier for DuraAct patch transducers and Pica shear actuators also is detailed. A tutorial on the technology is provided.
