Contrary to conventional thermal sensors that only measure temperature of a certain point-of-contact, Grid-EYE, based on Panasonic’s MEMS technology, can measure temperature of the entire specified area without any contact; in other words, it is a “contact-less thermopile array sensor”. 64 pixels yield accurate temperature measurement over a viewing angle of 60° provided by a silicon lens. Grid-EYE uses an I²C communication interface, enabling temperature measurements at speeds of 1 or 10 frames/sec. An interrupt function is also available.

Some of the distinguishing product features are:

  • Dimensions: 11.6 x 4.3 x 8.0mm (L x H x W)
  • Operating voltage: 3.3V or 5.0V (depends on P/N)
  • Temperature range of measuring object: -20°C to 100°C (depends on P/N)
  • Field of view (FoV): 60°
  • Number of pixels: 64 (vertical 8 x horizontal 8)
  • External interface: I²C (fast mode)
  • Frame rate: 10 frames/sec or 1 frame/sec
