Infrared array sensors deliver 64 thermopile elements
PANASONIC Grid-EYE Infrared Array Sensors are surface mountable and feature 64 thermopile elements in an 8×8 grid format that detect absolute temperatures by infrared radiation. Product is able to provide thermal images by measuring actual temperature and temperature gradients. Device enables detection of multiple persons, identification of positions and direction of movement, almost independent of ambient light conditions without disturbing privacy as with conventional cameras. The built-in silicon lens provides a viewing angle of 60°. Measurement values are viewable through an I²C interface in 1 or 10 frames per second. The interrupt signal output delivers a quick response to time-critical events for a high degree of flexibility.
