Cal Sensors has launched two families of lead-sulfur (PbS) infrared
detectors and a digital drive board. The single-channel detector (SCD) and multichannel
detector (MCD) families provide high sensitivity for a variety of infrared sensing
applications. The digital drive board optimizes detector performance and speeds
product development processes. The SCD-13HV (high value) PbS detectors meet requirements
for high-volume, cost-sensitive applications. Proprietary process controls and automated
production equipment result in high repeatability and suitable product consistency.
Applications include fire safety and flame detection, and process and quality control.
SCD detectors operate across the 1- to 3-μm wavelength range. Performance varies
with element size and window type. The PbS and lead-selenium MCDs offer detection
of up to four distinct materials/gases.
