Panasonic Grid-EYE Narrow Angle Infrared Array Sensors

Panasonic Grid-EYE Narrow Angle Infrared Array Sensors offer a narrower field of view than standard Grid-EYE array sensors. The sensor is based on an 8x8 array of thermopile elements with a 35.6° field of view, reduced from the standard sensor’s 60°. This allows the sensor to focus on and accurately measure objects at closer range, with applications in smart appliances, occupancy detection, and digital signage.

The sensor can measure objects from -20°C to +100°C with ±3°C accuracy and 0.25°C resolution. Panasonic’s Grid-EYE Narrow Angle Infrared Array Sensor supports up to 10 frames per second, an optional moving average, a standby mode with intermittent measurements, and a low-power sleep mode.

  • Sensor: 8x8 thermopile array (64 pixels)
  • Field of View: 35.6° horizontal and vertical
  • Temperature measurements: -20°C to +100°C, ±3.0°C accuracy, 0.25°C resolution
  • Frame rate: 10 frames/sec or 1 frame/sec
  • Stand-by: 1 measurement every 10 or 60 sec
  • Calculation mode: No averaging or double moving average
