General Specifications
   Actuator Configuration:       
   Your choices are...         
   Stack       Piezoelectric stack actuators are manufactured by stacking up piezoelectric disks or plates. These disks are electrically connected. The stack axis is the axis of the linear motion. When a voltage is applied, the thickness of the layers increases and thereby the total stack lengthens. 
   Tube       Piezoelectric tube actuators are monolithic devices that contract laterally and longitudinally when a voltage is applied between the inner and outer electrodes. With quadrature electrodes the tubes can be operated as XY scanners. 
   Disk       A disk actuator is a device in the shape of a planar disk. 
   Ring       Ring actuators are disk actuators with a center bore.  This makes the actuator axis accessible for optical, mechanical, or electrical purposes. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized or proprietary configurations, such as block, disk, bender, bimorph, etc. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Ultrasonic Operation?       Ultrasonic actuators are specifically designed to produce strokes of several micrometers at ultrasonic (>20kHz) frequencies. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Electrical Connectors       
   Your choices are...         
   DB-9       Similar in appearance to a CAPITOL D, D-subminiature connectors are generally referred to by the number of pins or sockets they have. For example DB-9, DB-25, etc. The design of these connectors varies little between manufacturers, except for the color of the shell. 
   BNC       The BNC is essentially a miniature version of the C connector that is a Bayonet version of the N connector. BNC connectors are available in both 50 and 75 ohm versions; both versions will mate together. The 50 ohm designs operate up to a frequency of 4 GHz. BNC connectors are used in many applications, some of which are flexible networks, instrumentation, and computer peripheral interconnections. 
   Two wires AWG26       Two 15.9-mils diameter (AWG26) wires. 
   Two wires AWG30       Two 10.0-mils diameter (AWG30) wires. 
   LEMO™ Connector       LEMO® is a precision push-pull locking connector for demanding applications. LEMO is a registered trademark of LEMO. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary connector types. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Performance Specifications
   Maximum Displacement:       The maximum elongation (normally specified in μm) that the actuator will produce when the maximum operating voltage is applied. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Blocked Force:       Blocked force is the maximum force (normally specified in Newton, N) that the actuator will produce when the maximum operating voltage is applied. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Maximum Operating Voltage:       The maximum voltage that can be applied to the actuator without impairing its functionality. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Stiffness:       Stiffness is a term used to describe the force needed to achieve a certain deformation or deflection of a structure. For piezoelectric actuators it is the force needed to elongate the device by certain amount. It is normally specified in terms of Newton per μm, or N/μm. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Resonance Frequency:       Resonance is the frequency at which the actuator responds with maximum output amplitude. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Capacitance:       The capacitance that the actuator exhibits. The capacitance is a function of the excitation voltage frequency. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.

Physical Specifications
   Length:       The length of the actuator. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Diameter or Height:       The inner diameter in ring or tube actuator and the outer diameter for disk actuators. The height in other configurations. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Thickness:       The thickness of the actuator. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Mass       The mass of the device. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
