Elk Grove Village, Illinois – Transducers USA, a supplier of audible signal devices, has announced the introduction of a new solid-state piezoelectric transducer that operates at a low frequency. This buzzer has been designed to respond to the need for upgrading and replacing electro-mechanical transducers with movable armatures.

The solid-state piezoelectric design feature eliminates the moveable plunger in electro-mechanical devices. With no moving parts, the solid-state circuitry promises an almost infinite life for ceramic piezo audio output.

The new Model TRIP-2612P(S) from Transducers USA delivers 400Hz at a minimum of 95dB with a standard 12DC.

The problem with higher frequencies used in audible alarm notification appliances is that many aging individuals lose their ability to hear.

The TRIP-2612P(S) from Transducers USA meets this NFPA code requirement. The TRIP-2612P(S) is RoHS compliant with a flame-retardant plastic cover. It provides easy and stable PC board mounting and connections. The unit measures 26mm x 19mm off the PC board.
