The number of applications for thermopile- based infrared sensors are extensive. In this section we have listed some of the applications where JonDeTech’s sensor can add great value due to its nanotechnology 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.
Presence and absence detection: Lap top
JonDeTech’s IR sensor works perfect in a presence/absence application. Due to its properties it can be used standalone without encapsulation, which makes it fit into even the narrowest bezels. Combining the size-made-to-fit attribute with an internally developed driver – that takes the raw non-calibrated IR signal and detect presence and absence – makes the solution extremely cost- and size effective.

Contactless temp measurement
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.
Temperature surveillance inside products
JonDeTech 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 or other heat sensitive electronics.
Car heat surveillance
This is an extension of the lap top application and can detect “life” inside of a closed car, parked in the sun, before the heat is rising to deadly temperatures.
Contactless temp measurement – Comfort temperature
Today we measure air temperature, however the air is heated by the objects in it. By measuring the “comfort temperature” – taking radiation from walls, desks and other objects, into consideration when we measure the temperature, we can better predict whether the temperature in an area will rise or decrease before it does. This application can be used in IoT and automotive application as well as in mobile phones.
