PowerHap Piezo Actuators

For a great haptic feedback

 Intro Pic

PowerHap actuators deliver incredibly fast haptic responses over high frequency bandwidth in a compact design. This is the perfect combination for crisp and sharp active haptic feedback. PowerHap offers an actuator for the most demanding and trending applications in automotive, ICT, and industrial sectors, such as infotainment displays, buttons, modules, virtual reality (VR), and stylus, among others.

Why PowerHap?

 Powerful

  • The multilayer piezoceramic delivers an outstanding fast and precise displacement, ideal for creating sharp and crisp active haptics.
  • The stainless-steel bows (or cymbals) on both sides of the actuator work as displacement amplifiers.
 Customizable

  • Its high frequency bandwidth enables endless vibrotactile and surface effects by adjusting the frequency, the signal, and the amplitude.
 Low Cost

  • PowerHap can also work as a sensor: When applying pressure on the bows an electric charge is generated. This optimizes the system cost as no additional force sensing is required.
 Performance

  • We speed-up your haptics project!
    It doesn’t matter in which kind of application you would like to implement haptics. TDK ensures the success of your haptic application in a fast way supporting the mechanical and software integration together with our various development tools.

Applications

 Automotive Touch

PowerHap 6005 for automotive displays

  • Enables cost-effective solutions as only a single actuator is needed to move displays up to 2 kg!
  • Generates vibrotactile and surface haptics from the same actuator thanks to its high frequency bandwidth and configurability​.
  • Delivers homogeneous haptic feedback across the entire display and enables slim designs in a lateral configuration.
