The DT Series of Piezo film sensors elements are rectangular elements of Piezo film with silver ink screen printed electrodes. They are available in a variety of different sizes and thicknesses. Lead attachment is accomplished using a riveted lug going to 12” (300 mm) of 28 AWG wire.
The DT film element produces more then 10 millivolts per micro-strain. The capacitance is proportional to the area and inversely proportional to the thickness of the element.
The DT elements are supplied with a thin protective coating over the active electrode area to prevent oxidation to the top surface of the silver ink.
