The number of applications for thermopile based infrared sensors is next to unlimited. In this section we have listed some of the applications where JonDeTech’s sensor would add a great value due to its unique features.

Among the main advantages are design flexibility, simplicity and cost effectiveness catered for mass market production. This allows for unprecedented usage areas and design possibilities, e.g., integration into smart devices where previous generations of IR sensors are too big, too fragile or too slow.

Once fitted onto a flexible PCB carrier it can be fitted, mounted or glued to most surface materials. The sensor is robust and can be used without any protective housing. With proper design it can be mounted directly onto walls or glued to machine parts, etc.

The standard applications are:

Contactless temperature

JonDeTech IR sensor has the ability to measure temperature on a surface without being in contact with the object. This enable a fast and accurate measurement in products like ear thermometers, small handheld devices such mobile phones and temperature surveillance inside buildings and offices.

Presence detection

The passive JonDeTech sensor has the ability to detect human presence by measure heat radiation. Typical application areas are for example: detect people in rooms, office spaces or in front of a device.

JonDeTech sensors measures the absolute temperature, which makes it reliable over time and is not dependent of movements.

Temperature surveillance inside products

JonDeTechs IR sensor is very thin and robust, therefore it’s possible to use it without encapsulation inside products to measure and monitor temperature on for example product casing/housing, batteries and other heat sensitive electronics.

Heat flows between volumes

JonDeTechs IR sensor can also measure heat flux, energy flow through two surfaces. This can be used for monitoring temperature and heat generation from human the body in products like smart clothing, watches, activity wristbands and patches. It can also be used to measure energy loss from pipes, windows and walls to enable a more efficient control of for example HVAC.
