Whats the third wire on a piezo buzzer


Posted on Feb 5, 2014

The piezo effect works both ways: if you apply a voltage the piezo stretches, but also if it stretches it creates a voltage. This principle is used to create a feedback signal which drives the oscillator. The advantage of the self drive is that it will automagically work at its resonance frequency, where it produces the loudest sound. In 2-wire circuits the oscillator`s frequency is

independent of the piezo`s resonance frequency, and it`s the designer who has to make that they`re close.
