The number following the hyphen indicates the number of pins.
Channel Number of measuring channels
Aperture (mm) Size of the circular or rectangular aperture through which radiation hits the sensitive elements.
Operating modes Size of the circular or rectangular aperture through which radiation hits the sensitive elements.
JFET/OpAmp Integrated signal condition like integrated junction field effect transistors (JFET) for detectors in voltage mode or integrated operational amplifiers (OpAmp) for detectors in current mode.
Thermal Compensation A pyroelectric detector is sensitive to changes in temperature. Changes in ambient temperature have an influence on the measurement signal and shifts the operating point. This effect reduces a thermal compensation. Therefore, each pyroelectric element gets an additional optically inactive element, which compensates for unwanted currents.
Low Micro Patented micromechanical chip attachment (LowMicro) by InfraTec to reduce the effects of interfering impact sounds.
Detectivity* As a key parameter, the specific detectivity D* characterizes the signal-to-noise ratio of infrared detectors.

LRM Detectors – Short Description

PYROMID® multi channel detector LRM-254 from InfraTec
Further information about LRM-254


As the first representative of the LRM series, the LRM-254 marks the starting point for all other models. The miniaturized four channel detector in a TO39 housing with an square aperture opening of 5 mm has the typical features of this product series: cap with central window, channel filters inside the detector, miniaturized stack design, large FOV.

LRM-102 and LRM-202

The detectors with the smallest housing size in the miniaturized LRM range are the LRM-102 and LRM-202. Both dual channel detectors are integrated in TO46 housings. Their aperture opening has a size of approximately 6 mm2 each. As a solution e.g. for gas analysis and leakage detection, they can be used in stationary and mobile devices ranging from medicine to safety technology.

PYROMID® multi channel detector LRM-244 from InfraTec
Further information about LRM-244


An enormous field of view (FOV) distinguishes the LRM 244 from other detectors of the LRM series. The extremely large, symmetrical field of view of the detector of more than 90 degrees enables flames to be detected within the greatest possible angular range. In addition to this, pyroelements, each with a particularly large sensitive surface of 2 × 2 mm2, ensure an ideal signal-to-noise ratio.

PYROMID® multi channel detector LRM-284 from InfraTec
Further information about LRM-284


On the market there are only a few miniaturized multi-channel detectors operating in current mode. Therefore the LRM-284 is definitely something special. The current mode of the single supply detector is enabled by two double-operational amplifiers. This detector allows the design of an analyser with low power consumption – a fact which particularly speaks for the operation of the detector in portable devices.

PYROMID® multi channel detector LRM-278 from InfraTec
Further information about LRM-278


The LRM-278 is the world's first detector of its kind to combine eight measurement channels in a TO8 housing with a diameter of 15.2 millimetres and operates in current mode. It also incorporates a temperature sensor. Measuring the temperature inside the detector, for example, provides the option of compensating the typical temperature drift of the filters very accurately by means of a calibration.
