Thermopile Arrays

The Excelitas Cool Eye™ family of thermopile array modules offer thermopile arrays in various configurations on a pcb with communication interface and a 4-pin connector. These arrays provide low resolution image sensing, and can be used as imaging arrays for presence detection, energy conservation, alarm applications and non-contact temperature measurement.

Cool Eye Thermopile Arrays are designed for applications that require low resolution 3-D thermal images capable of resolving humans and small animals without the use of expensive, high-resolution infrared imaging cameras.

The thermopile chip is connected to an integrated multiplexing and signal conditioning circuit, E 2PROM and microcontroller with an integrated ADC for signal processing and interfacing. The modules also contain integral optics - lenses for different fields of view are available. The sensor is equipped with an internal reference temperature sensor for correct target temperature determination.

Pacer not only provides an extensive optoelectronic and displays portfolio, but also offers custom design services for specific requirements -  find out more about our UK design centre and ISO14644-1 class 7 clean room.

Leading marketplace innovators in energy-efficient appliances are turning to Excelitas CoolEye™ for OEM indoor climate control and HVAC solutions.

TPiA 4x4 Array

The TPiA 4.4T 4246 L3.9 small infrared array sensor of 4 x 4 pixels offers the benefits of easy signal processing with spatial infrared imaging at low cost. The module includes a small IR transmissive lens and the thermopile sensor. A microprocessor on the module board provides a calibrated signal and acts as the bus interface. These new modules are supplied with a 4-pin connector.

CoolEYE 16x16 Array

This CoolEYE TPA 16.16C 5572 L4.7 Infrared Image Sensor offers spatial resolution of 256 pixels (16x16) giving the benefits of fast response with relatively low-resolution infrared imaging.The new module includes a small IR transmissive lens and a new array sensor. A small microprocessor on the module board provides a calibrated signal and acts as the bus interface.

CoolEYE 32x16 and 32x32 Array

This CoolEYE Infrared Image Sensor offers spatial resolution from 512 to 1024 pixels, with a parallel readout and fast response suited to low-resolution infrared imaging.The module includes a new array sensor and a small microprocessor which provides a calibrated signal and acts as the bus interface. The module is supplied with a micro USB connector.
