Advantages, disadvantages and applications of piezoelectric transducer

Advantages: There are some advantages of piezoelectric transducer which are given below, The piezoelectric transducer is available in desired shape. It has rugged construction. It is small in size. It has good frequency response. It has negligible

Difference between active transducer and passive transducer

Active transducer Passive transducer The active transducer is also called as self generating type transducer. The passive transducer is also called as externally powered transducer. The active transducer does not require any auxiliary (external) power supply. The

What are the selection criteria of transducer?

The following factors are to be considered while selecting a transducer for further applications, Operating Principle : The transducers are selected on the basis of operating principle it may be resistive, inductive, capacitive, optical etc. Operating range

Piezoelectric transducer

The piezoelectric transducers are used to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. Asymmetrical crystalline materials such as quartz, Rochelle salt and barium titanate produce an emf when they are placed under stress. This property is used in

Classification of transducer

Transducer: The transducer is the electronic device which converts one form of energy into another form of energy. In electronic system the transducer converts non electrical signal (physical) into electrical signal. Classification of transducer: The transducer can
