Digital Infrared Temperature Sensor for OEM Usage
Fri, 04/11/2008 - 7:42am
HL-Planartechnik, part of Measurement Specialties, Inc., introduces its TSEV01P OEM module with strong integration that leads to a reduction of the outer dimensions of the sensor, combined with a strong reduction of power consumption. These so called ‘thermopiles’ are used to measure temperature in a fast, precise and contactless way. Housed in a TO metal can, it provides an electronic voltage depending on the incoming infrared radiation. This sensor is suitable for consumer and handheld applications that include mobile phones, PDAs, battery operated (non-medical) thermometers, toys and many industrial devices that have limited room. It is equipped with a digital interface in order to provide straightforward integration to any system.
