Excelitas Technologies

Excelitas' infrared sensing technologies are playing a vital role in creating a healthier, cleaner and safer tomorrow. Excelitas has gained worldwide recognition for the design and production of high performance pyroelectric detectors, thermopile detectors and sensor modules which contribute to safeguarding homes, saving energy, and providing comfort. Applications include motion and presence detection, gas detection, thermometry and indoor climate control applications.

Excelitas is a major provider of high performance photon detection technologies, from Photon Counting Modules to Silicon Detectors and InGaAs Detectors, cameras, imagers and photodiode arrays.

Pulsed semiconductor lasers in the near IR (NIR) are commonly used for long distance time-of-flight or phase-shift range finding systems. Excelitas offers a broad range of suited pulsed 905nm lasers including monolithic layered structures with up to 4 active areas per chip, resulting in up to 100 Watts of peak output power.

Excelitas supplies Infrared LEDs emitting at either 880nm or 940nm.
