Description: When a mechanical force causes a suitably wired and polarized 2-layer piezo element to bend, one layer is compressed and the other is stretched. Charge develops across each layer in an effort to counteract the imposed strain. This charge may be collected for strain sensing, power generation and "energy scavenging".

The brass shim reinforcement laminated between the two piezo layers is an economical approach to producing a rugged actuator.

Standard Sizes: Designated "103", "203", "303" and "503".
