"Made in Germany" – From Standard to Special Detectors

The modular design of the InfraTec detectors as well as the large selection of different standard filters offer a wide range of application possibilities and thus room for your individual specifications. Our product range comprises a total of five different product groups with approximately 50 standard detectors, ranging from single-channel to eight-channel detectors. Each infrared detector is tested for functionality by our quality department before delivery. The individual measurement data for each detector is made available in our download portal. Our customers can retrieve this data via the assigned serial number and thus save the effort of an incoming goods inspection. At the same time, the requirements for traceability are fulfilled. To meet customer requirements in the best possible way, InfraTec also invests in internal research and development of new sensor technologies. Our in-house developed PYROMID® multi-channel detectors, for example, combine high technology in the smallest of spaces with their compact design.

Pyroelectric Detectors in Gas Analysis

Gas Analysis

The range of applications of pyroelectric detectors for gas analysis is very extensive, ranging from environmental measurements to the detection of gas leaks, steel analysis and medical patient monitoring while under anesthesia.

Infrared Flame Sensor

Infrared Flame Sensor

Use InfraTec’s fail-safe and consistently stable pyroelectric detectors for detecting typical spectral radiation, which is caused by burning organic substances.

Infrared Spectroscopy

Infrared Spectroscopy

In spectroscopes, very special pyroelectric detectors by InfraTec are used. Essential for this application are the uniform absorption characteristics over a wide wavelength range. This is made possible by a special absorption layer on the pyroelectric chip.

InfraTec: Small Detectors – Great Possibilities

InfraTec GmbH Infrarotsensorik und Messtechnik has over 30 years of experience in the field of infrared technology and the manufacturing of pyroelectric detectors. The business unit of the infrared sensor division produces custom‐made components on more than 1.600 m² of clean room space – especially pyroelectric infrared detectors – for clients worldwide. Based on a broad range of detector types, customized measurement tasks can be realized. Longstanding experience of R&D colleagues, technologists and constructors provides high‐quality customer support. Spectrally single and multi channel infrared detectors count among the products of the infrared sensor division. These detectors can be used in gas analysis, flame detection and spectroscopy.
