Ceramic Resonators (CERALOCK®) FAQ

Are there any points to be aware of when using CERALOCK®?

The construction of CERALOCK® is shown as below, and ceramic element is hold as a two durability beams. This element is a ceramic thin plate (<100μm), so that it may caused a crack in ceramic element (this crack will lead to no oscillation) when strong external stress is added.
Metal cap is fixed on the substrate by adhesive. So when strong external force is added to the metal cap, it may come off.
Please do not handle with a strong external force to the ceramic resonator (both body and metal cap).
