Shock Wave generation with Piezoelectric Shakers

The PIA series piezoelectrical shock wave generators from piezosystem jena produce exact precise shock waves by the use of piezo technology. Pulsers and
electronics produce exact precise shocks with accurate repeatability. Accelerations can be achieved as high as 500‘000 m/s2. The specialized high dielectric piezo ceramics produce considerably higher energy rates than common piezo actuators. The energy level is increased by the use of seismic masses. Pulse energy reaches Joule values. Primary pulse and reflected pulses interfere together in a characteristic form of a double pulse profile.
