Non-contact Temperature Measurement in Miniature

Hot and Cold - A Network of Temperature Measurements

Olching, (PresseBox) - LASER COMPONENTS introduces a lowcost module for noncontact temperature measurement with integrated ASIC, made by Dexter Research Center.

The MD-0003 module, which comes in a TO-5 housing, utilizes the SMBus with 2 wires. This setup allows up to 100 sensors to be linked to each other.

This component is available for 3 V and 5 V applications. The measurement range spans from -70°C to +310°C. In the interval from 0°C to +50°C a repeatability of 0.5 K is achieved. The rate of emission can be adjusted externally. A calibration by the manufacturer is stored in the ASIC.

All data apply to thermal equilibrium. The sensor is available on a standard basis without imaging optics with a fan angle of 90°. An evaluation board is also available upon request.
