Infrared Sensor Library Provides Wealth Of Instructional Videos

Excelitas Technologies introduces the Excelitas IR Sensing Video Library. The company’s product development team is producing a series of instructional videos to provide an overview of basic principles of operation and helpful instruction for streamlined integration and optimized performance in motion/presence sensing, gas detection and temperature measurement applications.


The library currently features two instructional videos on the CaliPile IR Sensor Series:

  • Introduction to CaliPile Multi-Function IR Series
  • Engineer-to-Engineer Volume 1: CaliPile Remote Temperature Measurement.


The innovative CaliPile Multi-Function IR Sensor represents a new range of intelligent multifunction IR sensors that includes highly sensitive infrared detectors and associated electronic circuitry. With selectable frequency filters and levels that allow users to choose different operation modes, a single CaliPile sensor performs in three distinct operation modes to offer maximum versatility for motion detection, presence detection and temperature measurement. CaliPile is available in ultra-compact SMD configuration, as well as conventional TO metal case housings with aperture window or IR focusing Lens options.


Additional video tutorials on the CaliPile and other Excelitas IR Sensor technologies will be added to the video library in the coming weeks, building a valuable resource for engineers seeking to engage Excelitas IR sensing technology in their product designs.
