HCM Series

HCM Series

The HCM Series provides a thermopile sensor chip and optical filter suited to the application plus an analog ASIC for signal conditioning inside a small SMD package. The gain of the ASIC can be preset to either 2150 or 4300 by an internal pull-up resistor. With the integrated linear temperature reference changing ambient temperature can be compensated for. The sensor supply voltage can be chosen in the range between 2.7 V and 5 V.

Features and Benefits

  • Small leadless SMD package
  • Integrated ASIC with analog output
  • Integrated linear temperature reference
  • Large number of optical filter options
  • Large operating range -20°C to 120°C
  • Ideal for gas concentration measurements
