Sealed Piezo Enclosure Kit: KIT-004
Depending on your usage case, having a stand-alone enclosure for our sealed piezos can be a handy tool for testing and evaluation. To this end, this kit provides a number of components that gives the user the ability to build modular enclosures for trials of the S233-H5FR-1107YB or S128-H5FR-1107YB piezoelectric benders.
Included in the kit are two rapid prototyped modular black “base” pieces, a rapid-prototyped clear top” piece, two sets of clamp plates, and mounting and tip mass hardware. There are several possible clamping options with the kit and two primary enclosure types that can be built. The basic enclosure configurations, a series of frequently asked questions, and the kit contents are included below.
Basic Enclosure Configuration Options
Enclosure Configuration 1:
Designed with haptic/tactile feedback in mind, the thin “clear top” can be paired with the modular black base to form a thin enclosure. The thinner clear top has a small hole, which is designed to be used with the included bumper. In this configuration one can create a tactile actuator demonstration.
Enclosure Configuration 2:
Designed for general purpose and vibration energy harvesting in mind, the second modular black “base” can be fitted onto the bottom “base”, to construct a thicker but more versatile enclosure from a mounting and tip mass hardware perspective.
