Grid-EYE® Infrared Array Sensor
Basically a thermal camera, just in a lower resolution. Featuring a built-in lens with a 60-degree viewing angle, the Panasonic Grid-EYE® is an 8x8 (64) pixel infrared array sensor offers digital output (I2C) for thermal presence, direction, and temperature values. Grid-EYE® features a compact SMD design using MEMS thermopile technology. Applications for this sensor can include: digital signage, security, lighting control, kiosks/ATMs, medical imaging, automatic doors, thermal mapping, people counting, robotics, and others.
Grid-EYE® Unit Infrared Array Sensor
Four Grid-EYE® Infrared Array Sensors team up to increase the detection area up to 3.8m squared. The Grid-EYE Unit comes preloaded with firmware capable of detecting and counting up to 8 people, in addition to tracking their direction of movement. The Sensor transmits this information via RS485 using Modbus protocol, a commonly-available method used for transmitting information between electronic devices. Applications include smarter building management systems and of course, people tracking.
Finding the right pressure sensor for your application is not an easy task since every application has its own set of criteria. Important things to consider are measurement factors such as pressure range and output; environmental factors such as temperature range and corrosion of the gas or liquid being measured; or even production factors such as package size and cost. Thankfully, here to make all that easier is our line of high precision Panasonic pressure sensors for industrial, medical and other gauge equipment uses.
PIR Motion Sensors
Panasonic’s collection of PIR Motion Sensors strike the perfect balance between easy integration, high reliability and environment-friendly materials.
With solutions for sensing and detecting rotational speed and angle, position, flow, velocity, temperature, magnetism, currents and much more, Panasonic Sensor Solutions are designed for a variety of applications including smart home and building, IoT, medical imaging, robotics, digital signage and people counting. Panasonic has recently introduced the new "Low Profile" Type PIR Motion Sensor that offers a 10.9mm profile alternative.
Laser Type PM Sensors
The Panasonic SN-GC Series Laser Type Particulate Matter Sensor can be used to detect a wide variety of particulate matter including, but not limited to, dust, fly ash, soot, smoke, aerosols, fumes, mists and condensing vapors, solid fuels, construction materials, cooking/smoking of plant matter, fireplaces and furnaces, house/forest fires and waste incineration. The list goes on.
The overall lifespan of the sensor can be extended much longer than its average commercially available equivalent. It has been programmed so that the fan will operate based on the amount of particle dust surrounding the laser diode. This sensor is equipped with an on-board microprocessor, micro-fan and laser diode.
