Product Details

RS Pro Vibration Sensor

Our own brand, RS Pro piezoceramic bi-morph element is a versatile, low power electromechanical transducer that is capable of converting mechanical or acoustic energy into electrical energy.

How does this vibration sensor work?

When the element is stressed or subjected to vibration, the minute movement causes one layer to be under tension whilst the other is under compression. Since the two layers are polarised in opposite directions the opposites stresses in each layer will produce an electrical output or charge.

Features & Benefits

• Option to use the sensor in reverse at 50 to 60 V dc
• Deflection of 10 to 20 μm
• Moisture resistant, green polyurethane varnish coating
• Non-magnetic
• Length 15 mm, width 1.5 mm and depth 0.6 mm
• High compliance, low mass
• Super-efficient
• High capacitance, low impedance

A little more info

Did you know that a vibration sensor is also known as piezoelectric sensor? They are also a high functioning, versatile tool that is used for the measurement of a multitude of processes within industries such as the medical industry, engineering, and nuclear technicians. A vibration sensor uses something called the piezoelectric effect - which is something that measures the changes in pressure, acceleration, temperature, strain or the force of something through converting them to an electrical charge. A vibration sensor can also be used to determine aromas in the air by simultaneously measuring resonance and capacitance.
