A transducer is a device which transforms nonelectrical energy into electrical energy or vice versa. (See, e.g., Middlehoek and Hoogerwerf .)
A transducer is a device which transforms energy from one domain into another. (See for example Rosenberg and Karnopp .) Typical energy domains are mechanical, electrical, chemical, fluid, and thermal.
A transducer is a device which transforms energy from one type to another, even if both energy types are in the same domain. (See Busch-Vishniac  for instance.)
