Spherical Piezo Elements Enable Use in 360° Ultrasonic Applications
PI Ceramic now manufactures piezo components as hemispheres and hollow spheres / These types of components are particularly suitable for use as 360° transmitters such as those used in sonar technology
Thanks to their design, the components are generally suitable for applications, which function as 360° sound transducers with a high bandwidth. Therefore, piezo components can be used in many different sonar application areas such as underwater communication, underwater monitoring, depth and underground relief measuring or for locating swarms of fish.
Application-Specific Adapted Design
The components are manufactured from ferroelectric soft or hard piezo materials according to the application range. This enables optimum setting with respect to the coupling factor and acoustic impedance. The spheres can be made with a hole or groove for easy mechanical integration.

Warum Big-Data-Analysen oft scheitern
Rund zwei Drittel der 152 Namur-Mitgliedsunternehmen sind davon überzeugt, dass die Datenanalyse prinzipiell zur Optimierung von Anlagen geeignet ist. Die Umsetzung von Big-Data-Analysen verläuft jedoch in den Betrieben eher schleppend, wie eine Umfrage der Technischen Universität München ergab. Die Wissenschaftler erklären, warum das so ist und warum Big-Data-Analysen oft scheitern.Weiterlesen
