Paper Abstract

We present the main applications for contact-less (radiation-) temperature measurement with thermopile sensors and show how the large number of different requirements associated with them can be matched using a low-cost sensor module construction set in a TO39 housing. The main components are: A choice from different MEMS-thermopile sensors or sensor arrays, one of two programmable ASIC’s, IR optical components to be integrated, such as filters, IR lenses, a Winston cone reflector and different caps. Of the latter, a significant innovation is the isothermal cap, which integrates the mechanical functionality of a cap with optical functions such as the reduction of ghost images and most importantly the thermal functionality of a massive heat sink. This way a complete pyrometer can be build into a TO39 housing.
