Compliant. Piezoceramic exempted from requirements of Article 4(1)
PSI-5H4E is an industry type 5H (Navy Type VI) piezoceramic. Thin vacuum sputtered nickel electrodes produce
extremely low current leakage and low magnetic permeability. It has high motion per volt sensitivity but its upper temperature range
is limited and its properties are more sensitive to 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.

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.
