Piezoelectric effect
Dimensional change of paraelectric materials influenced by an electric field

Piezo stripes

Parameters and performance


typically up to 2 mm
max. up to 10 mm

Blocking force

typically up to 0.7 N
max. up to 5 N 

Driving voltage (DC)

typically up
to 230 V

Typical characteristic values of piezoceramic bending actuators are dominated by their total displacement and the blocking force at the operating voltage.

The maximum deflection of a Piezo bending actuator and the maximum blocking force can be easily determined.

Performance features of three different kinds of Piezo actuators: Comparison of values of force and deflection of stacks, actuators with path transformations and bending actuators.
