Description: The Generator/Sensor Kit is designed as a development tool for those who wish to quickly verify the feasibility of a piezoelectric approach to an idea or application. The piezoelectric materials provided in this kit represent some of the basic building blocks employed in constructing bending generators, extension generators, and stack generators. Because the piezoelectric effect is reversible, the same elements are used as motors and actuators.

PSI-5A4E piezoceramic was chosen for the kit because it offers the fewest voltage, temperature, and stress restrictions. It is by far the most commonly used piezoceramic in the industry.

The manual is intended to help the user model, fabricate, and test a prototype generator as quickly as possible. Quick and simple techniques for cutting piezoceramic elements to desired size are described, as well attaching leads to the electrodes. Equations for open circuit voltage, closed circuit current, resonant frequency, maximum stress and capacitance allow the user to scale experimental results to many generator designs.
Piezo Generator Applications
•  Self energized accelerometers
•  Activity & rate response sensors
•  Small size, light weight, self-powered,
    solid state sensors.
•  Dynamic strain instrumentation
•  Vibration control & damping
•  Energy harvesting / scaveging devices
