Series P/S – long life under extreme conditions

Product Announcement from Piezosystem Jena, Inc.

Series P/S – long life under extreme conditions -Image

The piezoelectric element is shielded against external influences, such as extreme temperatures, high pressure and corrosive environments - conditions in which conventional actuators reach only a limited lifetime of a few hours. Unlike the series P / S, which achieves an Mean Time To Failure of 36,000 hours (for use below 85°C and 100V).

Translators are available in versions with a stroke of 18μm up to 70μm.  The piezo drive is also able to realize a blocking force of up to 3400 N. The construction of the housing tightly encloses the stack, thereby avoiding mechanical play. A built in pre-load mechanism and mounting attachments make installation easy. The M3 thread in the bottom plate allows for easy adaptation into existing systems.
