CTS Communications Components manufactures PZT material to both PZT5A and
PZT5H specifications. We have developed proprietary processes to accomplish
this. Our standard process makes a product with electromechanical properties
suitable for many applications. For more demanding applications we have a second
process that enhances the electromechanical properties and reduces the material
porosity. This allows our customers to construct effective elements with
dimensions of 0.1mm and aspect ratios exceeding 10:1.
CTS Communications Components PZT ceramics are characterized by their
extremely high density, low porosity and defects, and piece to piece uniformity.
Our internal designation are 3195 and 3195HD for PZT5A, 3203 3203HD for PZT5H.
Please refer to our material data sheet for specific material properties.
Piezoelectric Devices and Materials
CTS Communications Components manufactures a wide range of piezoelectric
devices utilizing our proprietary PZT material formulations. Our focus has been
on specific solutions to our customers requirements. For many of our customers
we are their sole source.
CTS manufacture all the ceramic used in our speaker products in Albuquerque,
NM, USA. Our speakers models are all piezo speakers utilizing our original
momentum drive design technology.
||Voice Range Current applications are in
medical imaging equipment, general instrumentation, and portable
communication devices where a non-magnetic, non-ferrous, light weight
solution is required for audio output.
||Mid Range These powerful, rugged, yet
light weight drivers have applications ranging from sound reinforcement in
the music industry to wind shear detection arrays installed at many airports
||Tweeters Characterized by a low end
frequency roll off at about 3 KHz. Applications include sound reinforcement,
PA, pro-audio, and car hifi.
||Annunciators Tuned to a very narrow
frequency band which substantially reinforces the output level at that
frequency, CTS Communications Components annunciators find applications in
vehicle anti-theft systems, backup alarms and commercial annunciators.
