Piezoceramic Components For Ultrasound Transducer Applications

PI - transducers

PI Ceramic offers piezoelectric ultrasound transducers, piezo ceramic components for piezo sensors, and elements made from PZT and lead free material formulations.

Piezoelectric ceramics are part of the electroceramic group of materials which cover electrical, mechanical, and magnetic properties. 

A piezoelectric transducer converts electrical energy into mechanical energy and vice versa; its operation range can cover DC to high frequency of several MHz. For ultrasonic transmitting (frequency above the human hearing range) applications, piezo ultrasound transducers are operated in resonance, with typical resonant frequencies between 200kHz and 10MHz. Piezo sensors pick up the slightest pressure fluctuation and convert them into electric signals.
