NDIR spectroscopy: differential pyroelectric detectors

NDIR spectroscopy: differential pyroelectric detectors
Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) spectroscopy is by far the most common gas detection method used today. Infra-red radiation generated by a broad band emitter is passed through the gas which is contained in a measurement cell. The advantage of NDIR comes from the strength of absorption in the mid IR compared to methods based on near infra-red spectroscopy. The strong absorption allows relatively low concentrations of gas to be detected with small path lengths and inexpensive components.

Vision sensors feature more stable detection

Vision sensors feature more stable detection
Updating its vision sensor IV series, KEYENCE has introduced optical character recognition (OCR) capability that can offer a simple, three-step (1 minute) set-up routine and more stable detection through high-intensity illumination and high-performance lens technology. In addition, the ultra-compact size makes the vision sensors easy to retrofit for companies updating their equipment.

Infrared detectors suitable for fit and forget applications

Infrared detectors suitable for fit and forget applications
LASER COMPONENTS has introduced industrial grade thermal detectors, from their research and production facility in Arizona. These detectors work on the principle that photons incident on the polycrystalline thin film, promote electrons across the bandgap increasing the conductivity of the material, in turn decreasing the resistance of the substance.
