Sensors and actuators join KEMET portfolio
The piezoelectric actuators now joining the KEMET portfolio, which are based on ceramic powder and multilayer technologies, consist of standard and custom devices. Piezoelectric actuators can provide an alternative to conventional mechanisms, delivering advantages such as fewer moving parts, fast actuation, simplified design, easier setup and maintenance, and reduced wear. Piezo actuators are widely used throughout industrial and consumer applications for purposes such as valve control, precision position control, and image stabilization.
The distributor has also added current transformers for versatile current sensing solutions and zero-phase current transformers for various circuit protection and user safety purposes. These current transformers provide a convenient and cost-effective solution offering advantages such as ease of maintenance and electrical isolation. Applications include smart meters, power conditioning, and safety circuit breakers.
As a result of the taking the new products on board, KEMET offers several families of temperature sensors to its customers, covering various temperature ranges, accuracy levels, environmental resistance, and safety approvals to fulfil applications such as monitoring process control and thermal protection.
