BM402 – A Channelite-5400 Replacement

Sensor Technology Ltd.’s new Navy Type I material, BM402, was formulated specifically to provide performance comparable to that of other well-known Navy I (PZT-4) materials, including the now unavailable Channelite-5400 PZT.  (See complete BM402 specs here.) Background: The military standard MIL-STD-1376B defines the performance properties of Navy Type piezoelectric ceramics. It provides a set of […]

Piezoelectric Spheres and Hemispheres

In 2013 Sensor Technology Ltd. launched an R&D project to improve our processes for producing piezoelectric spheres and hemispheres. Now, three years later, we have reached our goals. We are CNC machining PZT spheres to the same high quality standards we impose on all of our piezoelectric ceramic components. Additionally, CNC machining has increased our […]
