Single-Element Transducers

Single-Element Transducer Selection Guide

Our Single-Element Transducer Selection Guide (TSG) will help you quickly find the right transducer for your specific needs.  For 2D arrays (on a spherical concave aperture), consult our 2D Array Selection Guide.  We offer an extensive selection of standard single-element transducers, which are listed in the large table below.

We can also produce custom single-element transducers and 2D arrays, optimized for your unique application.  If you have questions or need technical assistance, please feel free to contact us.

To Create Customized Transducers

Use our proprietary Design Your Own (DYO) calculator to specify customized single-element transducers tailored to your unique requirements. The DYO lets you calculate changes in transducer output when you vary input parameters.

For your convenience, the DYO comes pre-populated with the parameters of model H-101, our most popular single-element transducer.  Simply vary any of the parameters to specify your unique model.  If you need to modify any other single-element transducer, select the DYO button below the transducer model name in the table below.  You can then modify the input parameters to your exact specifications.  Once you are satisfied with your choice, click Add Selection to Quote.

  • To increase the focal steering field, reduce the frequency.  When you reduce the frequency, the focal geometry increases.  To increase focal intensity, increase the frequency.
  • All calculations assume a linear free field environment.
  • Focal depth indicates the distance between the exit plane of the transducer and geometric focus.  For lower frequencies and higher f-numbers, the distance between the exit plane and acoustic maximum may be less.
  • Our Transducer Power Output (TPO) can output 100 watts average power per channel.  Other constraints within the transducer will limit power operation to well below this figure.  Contact Sonic Concepts’ technical support to help define these conditions on a case-by-case basis.

To Select Standard Transducers

The table below contains our complete catalog of standard single-element transducer models. To select your optimal transducer, use the drop-down menus under each parameter to input your specific project requirements. The TSG automatically filters the displayed models to present only the transducers that meet your exact specifications.
