The PIREPlus high-output emitter from Cal Sensors Inc. can be pulsed as a source of blackbody radiation for near- to far-infrared applications at 180 Hz with 50% modulation depth. According to the company, it delivers a pulsing speed 18 times faster than alternative technologies, maximizing signal-to-noise performance and expanding the measurement dynamic range and resolution for trace gases with very low parts per million. It is suitable for industrial and medical gas analysis, environmental monitoring, process control instrumentation, spectroscopy and plastics sorting. It comes with integrated drive electronics in an industry-standard 14-pin integrated circuit dual-in-line package. Compatible with a variety of infrared detector technologies, it can be used with the company’s MIRA4 four-color lead selenide sensor.
