DEXTER, Mich., Aug. 11, 2010 — Dexter Research Center Inc. has unveiled the low-cost MD-0003 module, housed in a TO-5 package, for noncontact temperature measurements. With an application-specific integrated circuit that stores the manufacturer’s calibration, it uses the SMBus with two wires. This setup allows up to 100 sensors to be linked to each other.

Integrated signal conditioning produces a calibrated temperature output in a plug-and-play package. Programmable outputs and flexible supplies yield a turnkey solution for medical, consumer, commercial and industrial applications.

The module is available for 3- and 5-V applications. The measurement range spans from -70 to 310 °C. In the interval from 0 to 50 °C, repeatability is 0.5 K. The rate of emission can be adjusted externally.

All data apply to thermal equilibrium. The sensor is available on a standard basis without imaging optics and with a fan angle of 90°.

The MD-0004 evaluation board is available as an option. It is controlled using a USB interface and a PC and enables developers to configure the temperature sensor module for virtually any application quickly. Users can evaluate the module for temperature ranges and optics to find the best configuration to meet their requirements, without the need to design any additional hardware. Simple test software and a quick-start guide are supplied with the set.
