Piezoelectric Sensor Market is a sensor based on piezoelectric effect which means the energy is being transformed between mechanical and electrical forms. Piezo meaning pressure in Greek, which when applied to the polarized crystal, results in a mechanical deformation, finally turns into an electrical charge. In simple terms, the crystals of quartz in a piezoelectric sensor generate a charge due to the pressure applied. At times, it has been acknowledged that there is an electrical insulation resistance that is quite large to make the charge drop down to a zero. The charge mode pressure sensor has a voltage amplifier and the leakage caused is fixed by a capacitance and resistance values along with low noise cable and external source voltage amplifier. The Curie brothers in 1880 found various piezoelectric properties in the left over ceramic and plastic materials. These materials often reflect many electrical side-effects due to the numerous piezoelectric properties due to changes in temperature and radiation. The normal voltage of a piezoelectric sensor can depend from microvolts to hundreds of volts, with simultaneous variations in the signal conditioning circuitry. The uses of a piezoelectric sensor varies from measuring pressure, acceleration, temperature to strain or force, finally converting it into an electrical charge.
