Piezofilm DT-Leads Series

Image DT-Leads

The DT-Leads series of piezo film sensors elements are rectangular elements of piezo film with silver ink screen printed electrodes.

They are available in a variety of different sizes and thicknesses. Lead attachment is accomplished using a riveted lug going to 12” (300 mm) of 28 AWG wire.

The DT film element produces more then 10 millivolts per micro-strain. The capacitance is proportional to the area and inversely proportional to the thickness of the element. The DT elements are supplied with a thin urethane coating over the active electrode area to prevent oxidation to the top surface of the silver ink.
