Squiggle motors are used in nanotechnology research, microelectronics, optics, lasers, biotechnology, medical devices, aerospace and defense, fluid control, and products including mobile phone cameras
New Scale Technologies has released updated specifications for its SQL series piezoelectric Squiggle motors.
These miniature linear motors are used in mobile phone cameras, medical devices, optical instruments and other OEM product and research applications.
An updated technical data sheet is available for download.
The data sheet includes the addition of operating specs for New Scale's smallest model, the 1.5mm SQL-1.5 series motor; updated specs for the 2.4mm and 3.4mm SQL series motors; and updated mechanical drawings.
The Squiggle motor is a patented piezoelectric device that converts ultrasonic vibrations into precise linear motion.
Squiggle motors are said to be smaller, more precise, less expensive and more efficient than conventional electromagnetic motors.
It has lower power consumption than miniature electromagnetic motors and holds its position when the power is turned off.
This ceramic motor is fundamentally compatible with high magnetic fields including MRI chambers.
Squiggle motors are used in nanotechnology research, microelectronics, optics, lasers, biotechnology, medical devices, aerospace and defense, fluid control, and office/consumer products including mobile phone cameras.
