     INFRARED Sensors
 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Smartec infrared sensors SMTIR99XX are sophisticated full silicon infrared sensors and comprise of so called thermopiles. Thermopiles are based on the Seebeck effect, which is a long time standard for conventional thermocouples. The application of thin film technology allows the production of miniaturised and low cost sensor elements. For specific applications there is a version with a small openings angle (7).

  The sensors can be used in measuring the radiation temperature without any contact. For different radiation temperature ranges various filters are available. The sensor type SMTIR9902 contains a temperature sensor for measuring the temperature of the sensor itself. The temperature range of the sensor-element is between -40 to 100 C. The sensor is available in a standard TO-05 encapsulation and is equipped with a 5.5 micrometer filter. For small field of view there is an infrared sensor available with a silicon lens.

    Most Important Features
  • High accuracy
  • High sensitivity (110 V/W)
  • Low resistance (50 kohm) and therefor
  • Very good signal-to-noise-ratio
  • Good response time (40 ms)
  • Low cost thin film technology
  • Easy and accurate measuring of
         the sensor temperature by means
         of a built-in temperature sensor
         (SMTIR9902)
  • Typical Applications
  • Contactless measurement of surface
         temperatures or Infrared radiation
  • Temperature measurement on moving
         objects
  • Continuous temperature control of
         industrial sites
  • Thermal alarm systems
  • Climate control
  • Medical instruments
  • Home appliances
