Years of continuous research in infrared sensing technology led to the development of a state of the art thermopile sensor that features 64 thermopile elements in an 8 x 8 grid format.

Grid-EYE, based on Panasonic’s MEMS technology, can measure temperature of the entire specified area without any contact; in other words, it is a “contact-less thermopile array sensor”. 64 pixels yield accurate temperature measurement over a viewing angle of 60 degrees provided by silicon lens. Grid-EYE uses I2C communication interface, enabling temperature measurements at speeds of 1 or 10 frames/sec. An interrupt function is also available.

Product features:

  • Dimensions: 11.6 x 4.3 x 8.0mm (L x H x W)
  • Operating voltage: 3.3V or 5.0V (depends on P/N)
  • Temperature range of measuring object: -20 degreesC to 100 degressC (depends on P/N)
  • Field of view (FoV): 60 degrees
  • Number of pixels: 64 (vertical 8 x horizontal 8)
  • External interface: I2C (fast mode)
  • Frame rate: 10 frames/s or 1 frame/s

Compared to single element thermopile sensors or pyroelectric sensors, Grid-EYE offers imense benefits and can be used in a host of applications. Ranging from energy savings in the lighting industry (commercial and public places as well as residential spaces) to household applications (air conditioners, microwave ovens, etc); from security systems (automatic doors, elevators, ATMs, kiosks, etc) to the medical industry (patient detection and positioning) and many more.
