  • Reliable Measurement - Piezo Sensors: Perfect Test Results, From The Widest Measuring Range Down To The Smallest Sub-Range
    Piezo sensors are used to reliably measure pressure, acceleration, tension or force. They are based on the piezoelectric effect which is due to the ability of crystals to generate an electric charge in response to applied mechanical stress. The applied force is always absolutely proportional
  • Pressure Sensor Technology: Part 2 in a 5-Part Series
    The three most common pressure sensor principles described below include metal thin-film and ceramic thick-film pressure sensors, which are the two most common implementations of resistive pressure measurement. The third pressure sensor principle is the piezo-resistive pressure sensor
  • Displacement Sensor for Nano-positioning Tasks
    Very small displacements, both static and dynamic, are normally generated by piezo actuators. High precision displacement sensors ensure that these displacements are measured to the required nanometre and sub-nanometre accuracies. Resolution and repeatability of up to 0.04nm are possible.
  • Ultrasonic Equivalent Manufacturers use MTI-2100 Fotonic Sensor for Precise and Repeatable Vibration Measurements
    . To create this motion typically a high voltage, high frequency electrical signal is supplied to a piezo-electric crystal stack. As the crystals are excited they expand and contract at the same rate as the excitation signal. The amplitude, or peak-to-peak travel distance, depends on the piezo stack
  • Micro moves
    mechanism, typically a slide or flexure. The end of the Squiggle screw moves the lens mechanism with precise speed and micrometer resolution. The mechanism incorporates position sensing to produce controlled steps. The camera's CMOS image sensor, Hall-effect, optical, or potentiometer devices may do
