The piezo transducer utilizes the principles of piezoelectric effect to function properly. When you apply mechanical stress or an external force to some material, they tend to produce electric voltage. The notary voltage can be measured with the help of voltage measuring tools which can later be used to measure the force or stress.
Things The Transducers Should Undergo
The materials used to measure should possess some considerable properties such as:
- High output,
- Insensitive to the extreme temperatures,
- The ability to be formed or mechanized into a certain shape.
None of the material that exhibits piezoelectric effect possesses all the features mentioned above. The piezoelectric effect was discovered in the year 1880 by Jacques Curie and Pierre. Continue reading “What Do You Understand By Piezoelectric Transducers?”
