Pyreos has confirmed that its ezPyro SMD Dual is shipping in prototype form for a new wider range of substances, and benefits from all software and hardware components of the established Pyreos development ecosystem.
Part of the world’s smallest and fastest family of pyroelectric sensors, the ezPyro SMD Dual collocates two thin-film PZT pyroelectric elements separated by just 1.6 mm Inter-Pixel Distance (IPD). The small IPD means that two channels can be measured by illuminating an area just 2.8mm across, making for an optically simple and energy-efficient design.
As well as being physically smaller, ezPyro reduces costs in several ways; the digital readout reduces system component count/cost and the integration of two channels further reduces cost and space. The lower Inter-Pixel Distance and reduced component count enables a physically smaller design which further saves solution cost and energy demand.
ezPyro SMD Dual now has a widened range of gas detection options. The dual-channel sensor solution can detect carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and hydrocarbons, refrigerants, nitrogen oxides (NOx), and sulphur oxides (SOx). Besides more expansive gas sensing it is ideal for analysis of foods including fats, sugars, proteins, alcohol and acidity.
