An updated technical data sheet is available for download at

The data sheet includes:
- addition of operating specs for New Scale's smallest model, the 1.5 mm SQL-1.5 Series motor
- updated specs for the 2.4 mm and 3.4 mm SQL Series motors
- updated mechanical drawings

The SQUIGGLE motor is a patented piezoelectric device that converts ultrasonic vibrations into precise linear motion. SQUIGGLE motors are smaller, more precise, less expensive and more efficient than conventional electromagnetic motors. It has lower power consumption than miniature electromagnetic motors and holds its position when the power is turned off.

This ceramic motor is fundamentally compatible with high magnetic fields including MRI chambers. SQUIGGLE motors are used in nanotechnology research, microelectronics, optics, lasers, biotechnology, medical devices, aerospace and defense, fluid control, and office/consumer products including mobile phone cameras.
