The CaliPile™ Infrared Sensing solution represents a new range of intelligent IR sensors capable of multiple sensing applications from a single compact sensor. This series of sensors include a highly sensitive Thermopile detector and onboard electronics that allow the sensors to be set into three distinct function modes:
- Motion sensing
- Presence detection
- Temperature measurement
To enable these individual functions from a single compact sensor, the internal circuit combines data storage with calibration data and a number of digital filters. The CaliPile Series of sensors offer a variety of form factors to meet a wide range of integration requirements: a compact SMD housing is complemented with traditional TO metal case versions with either aperture window or IR focusing lens.
With selectable frequency filters and levels, CaliPile enables users to set the product into one of the three major operation modes for maximum flexibility. The CaliPile receives calibration data to support temperature-related processing and output. Applications for the CaliPile Series include short-range presence detection with no additional lens requirements, non-contact temperature measurement and overheating protection. It is useful for IOT and smart-home products, lighting and printer sensing, and general industry thermal IR detection.

CaliPile TPiS 1S 1385
The TPiS 1S 1385 Sensor represents the smallest and smartest infrared design by Excelitas, to date. With its ultra-compact SMD housing, the TPiS 1S 1385 Sensor is the SMD version of the CaliPile Series providing 12C bus communication and signal output. An additional interrupt can serve as a “Yes/No” output for the motion, presence and temperature applications. The TPiS 1S 1385 offers an extremely compact size, requiring only three meters to achieve an effective range for human presence detection, with no additional lens requirement.

CaliPile TPis 1T 1086 L5.5
Equipped with a highly sensitive Thermopile detector, onboard processing electronics and a focusing lens for a narrow field-of-view, the TPiS 1T 1086 L5.5 sensor represents the TO housing version of the CaliPile IR Sensor Series. The sensor is calibrated for a temperature range up to 120°C or up to 200°C for all temperature measurement applications. Customers can use the maximum temperature setting to set the trigger level as the interrupt function will alert users when the level is exceeded. Request more information.
CaliPile TPiS 1T 1084
Featuring a robust TO housing and an IR window, this member of the CaliPile Series includes a highly sensitive detector on a Thermopile base, as well as the processing electronics. The sensor will be provided with data storage of calibration data and a number of digital filters. Similarly, to the TPiS 1T 1086 L5.5, all temperature measurement applications are calibrated for a temperature range up to 120°C or up to 200°C with a temperature alert built in.
