Film Technology for Switch Applications

Piezo film's capabilities to generate a high voltage output under bending strain, combined with its rugged form factor, make it an ideal candidate for solid state impact switches. Rather than using a switch contact closure, the piezo film generates a pulse which is detected by electronics. Although many of the DTs, LDTs and FLDTs supplied by Measurement Specialties are used for switch...
