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
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).
