Automotive

Industries & measures

The introduction of electronics, embedded software and wireless transmissions has helped to increase the number of equal-cost functions, to create interactions between objects and people, to continuously optimise system configurations and perform self-diagnostics. « In this field, our added value is to offer its clients the ability to integrate sensors and actuators close to structures in order to simplify architecture and miniaturise and reduce costs.”

Examples of applications

  • Fast piezoelectric valves
  • Active vibration control
  • Different types of sensors(force, torque and acceleration, liquid level, dynamic pressure sensors in motorisation)
  • Small silent piezoelectric motorisation (seats, air conditions, locking, etc.)
  • Energy harvesting for powering autonomous sensors
  • Ultra-rapid positioning actuators
  • Piezoelectric pumps

BUTTERFLY VALVE CONTROL MOTOR
Design study of a high-precision butterfly valve control motor. The use of a piezoelectric motor improves the valve’s control characteristics in comparison to a torque motor. Reduced weight, supreme driving performance.
