Weighing 120 mg
and operating in temperatures of up to +150C, the Endevco model 12M series
features the incorporation of Meggitt's Piezite-type P-8 bimorph sensing element, operating in bender mode.
This material offers low base strain sensitivity, low pyroelectric output and extremely
high charge output versus size. Advanced manufacturing techniques and materials R&D have propelled Meggitt
forward as an industry innovator in these types of piezoelectric sensing
technologies. As a result, models within the Endevco 12M series are routinely
incorporated into implantable medical device designs to support such critical
applications as patient activity indicators, cardiac pacemaker and
defibrillator rate response, implanted pain management device monitoring, blood
pressure monitoring, blood glucose monitoring, artificial joint pressure
measurements and external and implanted drug therapy systems.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
