STANDARD QUICK-MOUNT EXTENSION ACTUATORS
quick-mount extender
quick-mount extender
extender constraint
The tip of a Quick-Mount Extender moves longitudinally in the plane of the actuator. Constraining motion perpendicular to the plane helps eliminate any residual bending motion and/or low frequency bending or torsional resonances.

Description: A 2-layer element behaves like a single layer when both layers expand (or contract) together. If an electric field is applied which makes the element thinner, extension along the length and width results. Typically, only motion along one axis is utilized. Extender motion on the order of microns to tens of microns, and force from tens to hundreds of Newtons is typical.

Quick-Mounted extension motors save users the trouble of mounting and wiring transducer elements. They are easily attached and removed from equipment using the clearance holes in the PCB mount. They are wired for low voltage operation and the board mounted bleed resistor protects the transducer and user electronics from transient voltages arising from thermal and mechanical shocks. The user provides the mechanical connection between the transducer tip and their load.

Standard Quick-Mount Extenders employ T220-A4-103X, T220-A4-203X, T220-A4-303X, and T220-A4-503X standard brass reinforced transducers. They are more economically priced than other Quick-Mount configurations, and are generally stocked for immediate delivery.

In addition to the standard Quick-Mount transducers, we can also attach a Quick-Mount to any transducer of your choice (see Quick-Mount Options).

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