Non-Contact Infrared Sensors

ATC Semitec supply two forms of infrared sensor that produce high precision temperature measurement – by remotely detecting infrared heat from the target object – therefore providing measurement without any impact or physical effect.

These are ideal for surface temperature measurement over other alternatives such as contact probes where the measurement of thin film plastics, paper or high temperature glass or metals is almost impossible using traditional methods. It also can prove highly useful in medical applications, where contact with a surface may be too difficult or dangerous.

The NC sensor is a robust non-contact sensor primarily designed for use in office automation and other products with rotating motors whereas the thermopile is a very fast acting infrared sensor, often used in clinical thermometers.
