NEW IR Temp Sensor Module

Better than 0.5 ??C repeatability in the range 0-50 ??C with Dexter Research’s MD Series

Dexter MI, USA — Dexter Research Center announces the availability of its new MD Series Temperature Sensor Module (TSM). The sensor is integrated with signal conditioning that reliably produces a calibrated temperature output in a plug and play package, with options.

Programmable outputs and flexible supplies yield a turnkey solution for medical, consumer, commercial and industrial applications.

The module has better than 0.5 ??C repeatability in the range 0-50 ??C and its standard calibration covers a wide temperature range; -40 to 85 ??C for ambient temperature and -70 to 310 ??C for object temperature.

On-chip Filtering and Settling Time
The TSM features configurable on-chip digital filters. They allow customization for speed or noise.
The evaluation board, MD-0004 supported by PC SW allows easy configuration of the filters, while not requiring in-depth understanding of the EEPROM

The TSM can be configured to behave as a thermal relay controlled by the object temperature from sensor #1.
