Sensors are used for detection of vibration, sonar threats, mechanical motion, and audible tones. Exelis Acoustic Systems has provided solutions for sensing requirements for more than 50 years. Sensors using piezoelectric technology offer wide ranging and robust applications for the most demanding needs and applications. Areas of use are fuel or fluid presence, vibration, fluid and air acoustics, pressure, high and low force shock events, seismic and geographical.
Types of sensors using piezoelectric ceramic may be as simple as a monolithic block to fully engineered arrays capable of use on the ocean floor.
Sensors include hydrophones, accelerometers, and multi-axis sensors.
Transducers include hydrophones and sound sources for sonar applications. Exelis Acoustic Systems has been a supplier of sonar transducers for more than 50 years. Our transducers are engineered for life and provide reliability unsurpassed in the industry. Exelis transducers are used in commercial, industrial, military and medical applications on board ships, submarines, trawlers, hydroelectric facilities, harbor surveillance, diver detection, and fishery research.
Exelis offers engineered designs to complement new product designs and special applications. Contact us with your needs and application requirements.
Transducers are also known as sensors, hydrophones, arrays, projectors, sound sources, transmitters, transponders, sonars, receivers, flextensionals, and pingers.
