Thermopile Detector with Digital Output: DigiPile™
The DigiPile™ family of Digital Thermopiles is the latest digital infrared sensing technology innovation from Excelitas Technologies. The DigiPile family combines a time-proven MEMS-based sensing element with a fully integrated low noise amplifier, A/D converter and integrated ambient temperature sensor. An internal clock and control unit enable the detector to communicate with any outside microprocessor without the need for additional costly components. The DigiPile family is offered in a range of housing and sensing areas with applications in thermometry, pyrometry, and non-contact temperature sensing.

Along with the DigiPile's more reliable digital design functionality, the move from analog to digital provides OEM designers with a number of distinct advantages including reduced PCB space requirements, improved EMI resistance, and need for fewer additional components like low offset/low noise amplifier and associated filters.

The DigiPile will be offered in a range of housings and sensing areas with the first models from Excelitas covering the popular TO-46 and TO-5 metal housings. We are also offering a DigiPile model with a built-in lens, ideally suited to applications like forehead thermometry where a focusing system is desirable.

Key Features

  • More reliable digital design functionality than with analog – all "Digi" models include Thermopile infrared Detector and proprietary digitizing circuit (ADC)
  • Reduced PCB space requirements – by up to 20%
  • Integrated design - no need for costly additional components like low noise amplifier and associated filters
  • High signal to noise ratio based on our new thermopile chip with increased signal strength
  • Improved EMI resistance
  • Low operating voltage, down to 2.4V
  • Low current consumption
  • Range of housings and sensing areas to be offered
  • Option of model with integrated lens, where a focusing system is particularly useful
  • RoHS-compliant

Applications

  • Thermometry
  • Pyrometry
  • Non-contact, high-precision temperature sensing
