Piezo Drivers and Controllers

Piezo ActuatorsOverviewTo fulfill various requirements in terms of driving and control conditions for its piezo actuators (static, pulse, dynamic), CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES has developed 2 different families of piezo drivers and controllers:  Compact PCB devices for...

Amplified Piezoelectric Actuators (APA®)

Piezo ActuatorsOverviewPatented by CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES, amplified piezoelectric actuators are a mechanical magnified preloaded stack of low voltage piezoelectric ceramics (MLA). The mechanical amplification is obtained thanks to an external elliptical shell made of...

Parallel Pre-stressed Piezo Actuators

Piezo ActuatorsOverviewParallel pre-stressed piezo actuators (PPA) are preloaded low voltage piezoelectric actuators using a direct-acting multilayer ceramic stack (MLA). Most conventional Direct Piezo Actuators use an MLA preloaded by Belville washers on the end of...
