Long-Wave Infrared Sensors for Remote Temperature Measurement
To help make driving at night safer, Nissan did R&D work on infrared imaging sensors that can detect the presence of people even in places not illuminated by a car's headlights. (This technology is patented in Japan, the United States and China.) Similar sensor technology was already available, but it was expensive and had only limited uses. Nissan succeeded in drastically reducing the cost of this technology, and Chino Corp. has brought it to market in the following solutions, priced 80%-90% lower than conventional infrared sensor devices.
Miniature Thermal Imaging Sensor
This compact on-site-installation type unit contains a 2,000-pixel infrared detection device. Customers use these units to keep watch on heat generation, to collect temperature readings and for many other purposes.
- Lightweight, compact design makes unit ideal for on-site installation
- Unit can be connected to computer for thermal image monitoring or to alarm system
- Sensor unit automatically stores one image frame when alarm is triggered
- Durable dust- and moisture-resistant body
- Up to four sensors can be connected to LAN, used concurrently
- 80%-90% cheaper than previously available models
Sensor can be used to monitor abnormal heat in:
1. Electric panel boards
2. Transformer equipment
3. Ventilator motors
|Sensor device||48×47 pixels|
|Measurement range||-20˚C to 300˚C or 100˚C to 800˚C|
|Viewable angle||25˚×25˚ or 60˚×60˚|
Body Surface Temperature Checker
Equipped with a 2,000-pixel infrared thermographic sensor, this unit can quickly detect people who may have a fever, without physical contact. It is an ideal solution for companies, schools and other locations that must monitor large numbers of people entering the premises.
- Easy operation; no complicated set-up required
- Measures temperature in just 3 seconds
- Hygienic operation thanks to contact-free measurement
- Just 1/2 or 1/3 the price of competitors' devices
Sensor Use Example
- PDF files can be opened on the browser by using Adobe Reader plug-in. To use all features of Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0, you need to save the PDF file into your hard disk, and open the file from the Adobe Reader 6.0 application.
