Multilayer Plate Stacks (Compact)

CTS multilayer linear actuators are ideal for a wide range of electronic designs requiring precise and fast movement. The piezoelectric plate actuators are stacked to fit the needed height or stroke. Compact stacks offer a narrower width than regular stacks and are ideal for operation between -40 and +150C. Maximum height and stroke are 80mm and 128.7μm for our standard products. The specific stroke and capacitance of each product can be found below.
