TE Connectivity’s Analog Infrared Thermopile temperature sensors provide a non-contact, high-precision temperature measurement solution

 

Sensors are designed to measure temperature from a distance by detecting an object's emitted infrared energy

 

TAIPEI, China – Feb. 8, 2021 – As medical and industrial markets evolve, there is a high demand for accurate, non-contact temperature measurement. TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, manufactures non-contact Analog Infrared Thermopiles to support a wide range of accuracy, packaging and performance requirements to meet the needs of these evolving industries and to help create a safer, sustainable, productive and connected future.

 

Thermopile sensors are designed to measure temperature by detecting an object's emitted infrared energy from distances a fraction of an inch to several feet away. The thermopile sensing element, composed of small thermocouples on a silicon chip, absorbs the energy and produces an output signal.

 

“Providing reliable sensors that create a safer, sustainable and more connected future is our ultimate goal,” said Xing Liu, product manager, TE Connectivity. “Analog infrared thermopiles measure non-contact temperature and are available with various lenses and filters, allowing for use in multiple applications, including industrial pyrometers, climate controls and medical devices.”

 

Additional benefits of TE’s analog infrared thermopiles for applications across the auto, aerospace, industrial, appliance and medical device sectors include:

  • Measures a wide range of temperatures from -40°C to +300°C. The robust package utilizes highly accurate reference nickel RTD- or NTC-based sensors, allowing TE thermopiles to be more easily compensated and provide an accurate output.
  • Multiple configurations for single pixel or multi pixel.
  • Optical filter options including a standard flat window and a range of silicon lenses for a narrow field of view to filter specific wavelengths.
  • Robust sensor packages including hermetically sealed housings, stainless steel packaged housings and integral circuit boards and connectors.
