Compliant. Piezoceramic exempted from requirements of Article 4(1)
Description: PSI-5A4E is an industry type 5A (Navy Type II) piezoceramic. Thin vacuum sputtered nickel electrodes produce
extremely low current leakage and low magnetic permeability. It operates over a wide temperature range and is relatively temperature
When an electric field having the same polarity and orientation as the original polarization field is
placed across the thickness of a single sheet of piezoceramic, the piece expands along the axis of polarization (thickness
direction) and contracts perpendicular to the axis of polarization (length and width direction). The motion in the thickness direction is on the order of tens of nanometers. Motion in the length direction is
typically on the order of microns or tens of microns.
Our single sheets are available in
the standard 2.85 inch (72.4mm) square size for immediate delivery. Custom Sizes: We can custom cut sheets to any size. Delivery of custom cut sheets
is usually 1-2 weeks. Please contact sales for a quote.
Soldering wires to piezoceramic and/or the center shim can be
difficult without the proper solder and flux. Our kit will get you started with everything you need, plus information on ordering
larger quantities directly from the manufacturer.
