PowerHap™ - Powerful Haptic Feedback Device
Piezo actuator for innovative high-quality haptic feedback by TDK
TDK Corporation presents the innovative PowerHap piezo actuator with haptic feedback and integrated sensor functionality. The actuator features unrivalled performance in terms of acceleration, force, and response time, and thus offers an unprecedented quality of haptic feedback.
The compact and powerful actuator enhances the sensory experience of HMIs significantly by engaging the full range of human tactile sensitivity. PowerHap is based multilayer piezo plates with cost-effective copper inner electrodes. When activated, the piezo plates only expand minimally in the z axis, but due to the constant volume of the piezo effect contract simultaneously in both the x and y axes.
The PowerHap piezo actuator is available in 2.5 G (9 mm x 9 mm x 1.2 mm), 7 G (12.7 mm x 12.7 mm x 1.9 mm), and 15 G (26 mm x 26 mm x 2.4 mm) types.
