Piezo Film Sensors
 
Measurement Specialties, a division of TE Connectivity offers piezoelectric fluoropolymer film, which has unique capabilities and produces voltage or charge proportional to dynamic strain. The film is suited for many different custom designs, configurations and applications, including versatile coaxial cable used for everything from security to musical instrument amplification.

Piezo film is a flexible, lightweight, tough engineering plastic available in a wide variety of thicknesses and can cover large areas. Piezo film has low density, excellent sensitivity and is mechanically tough.

The compliance of piezo film is 10 times greater than the compliance of ceramics. When extruded into thin film, piezoelectric polymers can be directly attached to a structure without disturbing its mechanical motion.

Piezo Film Properties as a Transducer Include:
  • Wide frequency range – 0.001 Hz to 108 Hz
  • Vast dynamic range (10-8 to 106 psi or ì torr to Mbar)
  • Low acoustic impedance – close match to water, human tissue and adhesive systems
  • High elastic compliance
  • High voltage output – 10 times higher than piezo ceramics for the same force input
  • High dielectric strength – withstanding strong fields (75V/ìm) where most piezo ceramics depolarize
  • High mechanical strength and impact resistance (109-1010 Pascal modulus)
  • High stability-resisting moisture (less than 0.02% moisture absorption), most chemicals, oxidants, and intense ultraviolet and nuclear radiation
  • Can be fabricated into unusual designs
  • Can be glued with commercial adhesives
