- blocking force up to 850 N
- msec response time
- stainless steel housing
- flexible epoxy insulation

The P series piezo actuators are not pre-loaded, but can withstand moderate pressure forces.
The piezo actuator stack is encased in non-magnetic stainless steel housing with the top and bottom epoxied to eliminate mechanical play.
Piezo actuators having diameters greater than 12 mm can be equipped with a strain gauge measurement system. Adding strain gauges increases the length and diameter by 2 mm. The accuracy is in the nanometer range.
The P series provides a response time in the millisecond range with sub-nm resolution.
Typical applications includes precise positioning of small components like mirrors or optics. Piezo actuators without pre-load are not suitable for dynamic applications.
For use in dynamic applications please choose series PA.
