metal surfaces above 35 °C. The emissivity of
metallic surfaces decreases with shorter wavelengths, so the devices offer better performance
than those with a longer-wavelength response,
according to the company. Other advantages
are smaller spot sizes, fast response times and
digital signal processing that provides for wide
temperature ranges. The versatile pyrometers
offer two solutions for aiming: see-through optics and laser. There is also a fixed-focus version
for extremely small spot sizes.

light sensing in smartphones and similar devices. It simplifies the elimination of crosstalk by
combining the emitter and detector chips, circumventing the design requirements usually
necessary to suppress crosstalk. Designers no
longer have to install a separate IR emitter to
enable the proximity sensor function. The SFH
7773 detects objects up to a distance of 15 cm,
while simultaneously measuring the intensity of
the ambient light. Its package measures 5. 3 ;
2.5 ; 1.2 mm.

1.2-, 1.4-, 2-, 4-, 5-, 8- and 12-megapixel formats. They operate at speeds of up to 300 fps
and are available in monochrome and color
versions. Features include image filtering,
image compression, color correction and space
conversion, and image transfer-on-demand. Integrated performance and operational capabilities include a dynamic range suitable for optimizing image capture from sun to shade,
motorized lens control with image-to-image
aperture, zoom and focus functionality, auto
iris, and RS-485 and RS-232 ports to control
peripherals around the camera.
