PowerHap™ Actuators
Tech Notes
TDK Product Features
PowerHap™ piezo actuator with haptic feedback and integrated sensor functionality offers unrivalled performance in terms of acceleration, force and response time, and thus provide an unprecedented quality of haptic feedback. PowerHap is based on multilayer piezo plates with cost-effective copper inner electrodes and is available in different sizes and designs. PowerHap delivers high force in a very compact design and is therefore suitable for many applications from lightweight mobile devices to heavy industrial or automotive displays. Unlike conventional electromagnetic solutions, PowerHap actuators can excite the entire stimulation range between 1Hz and 1000Hz. They thus have no significant frequency or amplitude limitations for customized haptic feedback to key human mechanoreceptors. Applications for the PowerHap can be found, for example, in vehicles, smartphones and tablets, household appliances, ATM's and vending machines, game controllers, industrial equipment and medical devices.
