Contracting Amplified Actuator (FPA-C)

Contracting Amplified Actuator (FPA-C)

Flextensional Piezo Actuators (FPA) mechanically amplify the motion of piezoelectric ceramic stacks offering high displacements and high/moderate stiffness. Displacement ranges up to 2000 µm. Operating voltage is -30 to +150V. Both “Energize to Expand” and “Energize to Contract” architectures are available.
