Amplified piezo actuator can replace solenoids

Viking AT's ViVa actuator works with valves and flow controls with enough stroke to replace solenoids.

August 2, 2014

Viking AT’s ViVa piezo actuator are designed to work with valves and flow control operations and have enough stroke to replace solenoids. The actuators come in a modified 3mm and 12mm and handle most applications with variances to allow for push or pull actions and are designed to reduce power consumption. The ViVa piezo actuators are designed to resist vibration and have low to no friction. They’re are able to maintain low temperatures during actuation for an indefinite length of time. Other features include a multi-configurable design and a low magnetic signature.
