Viking AT Specializes in Practical Piezo Solutions for Commercial and Consumer Applications:
We can help you add performance and reduce power consumption in your valve, lock, latch, or mechanism. For example, Viking has designed many valves incorporating it’s actuation technology.
Viking has adapted many valves to incorporate ViVa actuation technology. Those valves now perform better and operate with 95% less power.
ViVa® GREEN POWER Technology:
Everyone wants to get the most out of their manufacturing process and product capabilities. With Viking AT’s ViVa® Piezo Technology solutions you get:
Ultra High Efficiency Piezo Actuators
Viking AT announces its ViVa® series Solid State Electromechanical Actuators. These revolutionary devices utilize piezoceramics driving a uniquely engineered active frame which amplifies the piezo displacement by a factor of 50, 100 or 200 times to produce an ultra-high efficient and accurate voltage controlled actuator.
The ViVa® actuators achieve maximum efficiency by effectively utilizing the piezoelectric effect. This means much lower power consumption, typically up to 98% less than a solenoid. Due to low current draw, ViVa has little to no heat emission.
Today’s power requirements are simple: less power and more performance!
Mechanical Characteristics & Performance:
The ViVa® actuator’s engineered active frame contains no frictional parts. Active members operate only within the infinite life region of the material which allows for more than a billion cycles and beyond.
Ultra quick response time and accurate action allow for efficient operation even up to 1,000 Hz. Symmetrical force output means equal force while pushing or pulling, no need for return springs.
We can apply ViVa® to your device or develop a completely new valve, lock, or latch for your product.
Applications & Other Benefits:
Utmost reliability and low power consumption make ViVa® stand out for clean, precise, long lasting reliable service in almost any environment and applications such as: Valves, Grippers, Door Locks, Linear Actuators and Replacement of solenoids.
Other benefits include:
• Low magnetic signature
• Can provide positional feedback
• Low noise operation
• Can provide force & pressure sensing
• Multi configurable
• Extremely accurate positioning
