Omron D6T MEMS Thermal Sensors
Omron provides true presence detection, rather than just motion detection, with their D6T MEMS Thermal Sensors. The D6T is available in multiple configurations, including a 4 by 4 array, 1 by 8 array, single element with narrow field of view and single element with wide field of view. Rather than detecting the overall temperature change, the non-contact thermal sensor constantly measures the temperature detected by each element, allowing it to detect people as well as moving and stationary objects. Based on the model, the sensors support detection ranges from negative 40 to positive 80 degrees Celsius while maintaining high resolution and high accuracy. By integrating the MEMS and processing ASIC the sensors provide industry-leading SNR. Furthermore, the I2C interface makes it easy to integrate into applications such as energy management, security, factory automation, and even smart kitchen appliances.
- Element Type: 1x1 (wide and narrow field of view models), 1x8, 4x4
- Continuous temperature measurements enable true presence detection
- Object Temperature Detection Range: as wide as -40°C to +80°C (based on model)
- High accuracy (±1.5°C) and high resolution (up to 0.02°C)
- Industry-leading SNR offers superior noise immunity
- I2C interface
