Standard contacts for piezo actuators are 100 mm stranded wires or soldering points. For each piezo element, different wires acc. to the AWG standard are used. PICA Shear for cryogenic and UHV environments use tantalum electrodes, which can be contacted by means of a conducting adhesive or by welding. Please observe the soldering instructions for each product.
PICA stack actuators are produced in a variety of shapes. Depending on the application, they can also be assembled with adapted ceramic or metal tips, additional coating, temperature sensors, etc. On request, we gladly offer you customized products.
