Thermal IR detectors
one and multichannel detectors for remote temperature measurement and gas analysis
Micro-Hybrid ir detectors offer high sensitive thermopile sensors for non-contact temperature measurements and gas detection. MTS thermopile sensors, 1, 2 or 4 channel variants, detect broadband IR radiation. The basis of each detector is formed by the so-called thermocouple. Thermal diffusion currents of two different metals (Seebeck effect) generate an electrical voltage when exposed to infrared (IR) radiation or heatwhich is transmitted and processed as a measurement signal.
