Piezoelectric Actuators for Miniature Mechanical Manipulation Applications

The Piezoelectric Actuator Series AMC0612-3PE and AMC0212-1PE feature output voltages of 200 volts and 600 volts and a variable/ controllable input voltage. The fine tuning on these devices makes possible to have parts/million control of the valve. These new piezoelectric actuators are ideal for miniature and micro-miniature valve markets.

Piezoelectric actuators convert electrical energy directly into linear motion with virtually unlimited resolution

Brief Description
-
AMC0612-P3 - This is a specially designed piezo-electric actuator for miniature mechanical manipulation applications. Output drive capability of up to 600Vout will cause actuations for capacitance loads of 20 pF to 100 nF. Rise (Ton) and Fall (Toff) times specifications are guaranteed to be less than 30 ms.
- AMC0212-P1 - This is a specially designed piezo-electric actuator for miniature mechanical manipulation applications. Output drive capability of up to 200Vout will cause actuations for capacitance loads of 20 nF to 2 uF. Rise (Ton) and Fall (Toff) times specifications are guaranteed to be less than 25 ms.
