Thermopile Sensors

In General

Thermopile Sensors generate a small thermoelectric voltage proportional to the detected radiation. These Sensors can be used to determine surface temperatures or to measure certain gas concentrations, like CO2, CO, N2O or Hydrocarbons, according to the principle of “non dispersive infrared spectroscopy”. Our thermopile sensors can be operated at temperatures between -20 and +120°C (-20 to 180°C for HTS-HT) and are normally equipped with a thermistor reference to determine the sensors housing temperature which normally is equal to ambient temperature. The Sensors are available in standard TO-39 packages, TO-46 packages and Micro TO packages.
