TE Connectivity manufactures non-contact Analog Infrared Thermopiles to underpin a broad variety of accuracy, packaging and performance demands to satisfy the requirements of these evolving industries and to assist in creating a safer, sustainable, productive and connected future.

The sensors are created to measure temperature by identifying an object's emitted infrared energy from distances only a fraction of an inch to several feet away. The sensing element, comprised of small thermocouples on a silicon chip, absorbs the energy and provides an output signal.

“Providing reliable sensors that create a safer, sustainable and more connected future is our ultimate goal,” said Xing Liu, product manager, TE Connectivity. “Analog infrared thermopiles measure non-contact temperature and are available with various lenses and filters, allowing for use in multiple applications, including industrial pyrometers, climate controls and medical devices.”

Typical applications suitable for the devices cover the auto, aerospace, industrial, appliance and medical device sectors.
