Piezoelectric Sounders / BuzzersMurata's SMD piezoelectric sounders have proven to be popular.

The SMD sounders (surface mounted type) are available for new designs or existing products that are looking to replace a pin type or electromagnetic sounder.
Recently Murata has noticed an increase in interest for our SMD Piezoelectric Sounders over the other options available to the market

Why ?

Six reasons why Murata's SMD sounders are selected

Click the following item for more information.

Small size & low profile

Thickness: about 70% slimmer *compared with our products Ideal for compact health care and wearable devices, etc.

Low current consumption

Batteries last longer

High sound pressure(High sound volume)

Produces the highest sound pressure level across the entire industry. *Researched by Murata

Easy assembly

Mounting only.
Complicated diaphragms / housing designs are not required.

Low characteristics fluctuation before and after reflow

The product can be used reliably with less deterioration in the sound pressure due to the thermal load.

For automobile use

This product has been used for many years in automotive applications as well as with the design and manufacturing technology accumulated by Murata.

High sound pressure (High sound volume)

The PKMCS1818E20A0-R1 achieves 100 dB (Typ).

  • *@2kHz, +12 Vo-p square wave, 10 cm

Easy assembly

  • Complicated diaphragms / housing designs are not required. Murata's SMD sounders are finished with the optimal acoustic design.
  • When full SMD is used, the flow process can be eliminated in the mounting process (including bonding of SMD components).

Low characteristic fluctuation before and after reflow

The product can be used without concern of an effect from the thermal load. Click here for detailed data.
