n.
1. Physics A substance or device, such as a piezoelectric crystal, microphone, or photoelectric cell, that converts input energy of one form into output energy of another.
2. Biology Something, such as a receptor in a cell membrane, that transmits a signal within a cell or from the exterior of a cell to its interior.

From The WS501-UMB to the WS510-UMB - The Diversity of Measurement Tranducer
Direct blood pressure was measured with a pressure tranducer (TruWave disposable pressure transducer, Edwards Lifesciences LLC, Irvine, CA, USA) linked to a patient monitor (90367 Ultraview 1030 monitor, SpaceLabs Medical Inc, Redmond, WA, USA) and zeroed to the atmospheric pressure at the level of the right atrium.
A specially modified stroke tranducer is said to precisely control the clamp movements for "breathing" and injection-compression to [+ or -]4 mils.
These benefits are available to immediately solve existing problems, where simply applying the Ultrafast(R) tranducer coating on already specified fasteners is required.
