- Perfect for creating haptic (touch) feedback systems
- Unique suspension allows high excursion for surprisingly powerful response
- Rare-earth neodymium motor and a proprietary 13 mm voice coil
- 4-ohm impedance for use with small, Class D amplifiers
- Pre-applied 3M™ VHB™ adhesive for quick, durable installation
Dayton Audio DAEX-13-4SM Skinny Mini Exciter Audio and Haptic Feedback 13mm 3W 4 Ohm
Dayton Audio's DAEX-13-4SM Skinny Mini exciter will allow you to add audio or haptic (tactile) feedback to even the smallest projects. The 13 mm Skinny Mini exciter is an ideal option when designing pocket sized personal speakers or for adding audio to small art projects and models. At only 0.75" wide by 1.5" long, this exciter is even perfect for use in virtual reality haptic feedback systems such as gloves and headsets.
A neodymium magnet is employed to create maximum magnetic flux around the proprietary voice coil for increased sensitivity when compared to similar sized exciters. In turn, this reduces power requirements and makes it possible to use very small audio amplifiers, without sacrificing total output. The unique suspension is capable of high physical excursion to allow this extremely small and lightweight exciter to deliver an impressive amount of force while remaining linear.
To ensure maximum acoustic energy transfer between the transducer and the surface to which it is attached, 3M VHB (Very High Bond) adhesive is pre-applied... just peel and stick! Two PCB solder points keep installation and wiring as compact as possible.
A great field of application for this exciter is so-called DML or flat-panel speakers. DML stands for Distributed Mode Loudspeakers and is a term for speakers that catch the eye with their incredibly slim design.
Note: An exciter's frequency response and sensitivity are completely dependent on the exciter's designated surface. Thinner, smaller materials will tend to be louder and create a mid/tweeter response. Thicker, larger materials (with multiple exciters) will be slightly quieter but result in a more full-range sound.
