PbS and PbSe detectors with self-test feature for safety related applications
02 Jun 2020
trinamiX introduces a self-test feature for its PbS and PbSe infrared detectors by building in near-infrared LEDs into their TO packages. These carefully positioned LEDs periodically illuminate the detectors. The evaluation of that signal provides information about their operational and functional behavior. This mechanism ensures additional reliability for flame monitoring, spark detection or gas sensing.
trinamiX www.trinamixsensing.com is a wholly-owned subsidiary of BASF SE, the world’s largest chemical company. Founded in 2015, the company has developed a wide-ranging portfolio of technologies and products around both Infrared detection as well as 3D imaging and distance measurement employing a team of more than 100 experts across a wide range of scientific disciplines.
