Contactless temperature detection over a wide area

sensors grideye area

Contrary to conventional thermal sensors that only measure temperature of a certain point-of-contact, Grid-EYE which is based on Panasonic’s MEMS technology -can measure temperature of the entire specified area without any contact.

64 pixels yield accurate temperature measurement over a viewing angle of 60° provided by silicon lens.
