Description: When a mechanical force causes a suitably wired and polarized 2-layer piezo element to bend, one layer is compressed and the other is stretched. Charge develops across each layer in an effort to counteract the imposed strain. This charge may be collected for strain sensing or power generation.

Quick-Mount piezoelectric bending sensors save users the trouble of mounting and wiring transducer elements. They are easily attached and removed from equipment using the clearance holes in the PCB mount. They are wired for parallel operation. The user provides the mechanical connection between the transducer tip and the load.

Standard Quick-Mount piezoelectric benders employ T220-A4-103Y, T220-A4-203Y, T220-A4-303Y, and T220-A4-503Y standard brass reinforced transducers. They are more economically priced than other Quick-Mount configurations, and are generally stocked for immediate delivery.

Standard Sizes: Designated "103", "203", "303" and "503"

Active Length of Quick-Mount 
Piezoelectric Bending Sensor
"103", "203", and "303" Quick-Mount piezo generator performance is based on a 1.125" active length.
"503" performance is based on a 2.25" active length.
Quick-Mount performance is based on the force being applied at the outermost tip of the transducer.
A Double Quick-Mount version is also available for "103", "203", "303" and "503" sizes.
