Excelitas' Thermopile Sensors are enabling many applications including energy-conserving home appliances, intelligent air conditioners, and ear and forehead thermometers.
DigiPile™ is the revolutionary, digital family of Thermopile Sensors designed specifically for non-contact temperature measurement. The DigiPile Family is offered in traditional TO-46 and TO-5 metal housings as well as our newest SMD model in a ceramic-type package - the TPiS 1S 1253.
With Excelitas, you are not limited to off-the-shelf, standard designs. We encourage you to discuss with us the customization needed to support your most demanding infrared sensing applications.
Excelitas offers a wide range of Thermopile Detectors including Single-Element, Dual- Element and Quad-Element designs. The “Element” refers to the size of the infrared absorbing surface. We offer various surfaces and housings. With Excelitas, you are not limited to off-the-shelf designs; customized designs for the most demanding applications are also possible.
Excelitas offers you a wide range of Thermopile Modules. The modules consist of a thermopile sensor mounted on a PCB with a connector. The PCB can also provide for optional features such as voltage regulation and a noise-reduction filter. Our ISO-thermal sensor concept delivers an important upgrade to the thermopile family; by utilizing the unique, patented construction of our ISO-thermal sensors, Excelitas is able to offer this range of devices with improved performance, delivering substantially improved temperature measurement performance under thermal shock conditions. The ISO-thermal module includes integrated temperature compensation for a defined temperature environment and the calibration to a certain object temperature range. Modules are offered as programmed per individual customer request, and there is a range of standard versions. For requirements of defined spot sizes, we offer sensors with a field of view defined by optical apertures, internal lenses or external mirror optics.
A temperature reference output is included. Upon request, the thermopile modules can also be supplied as calibrated modules but without internal temperature compensation. In this case the customer will do the temperature compensation externally with the use of the supplied reference output.
