Excelitas Technologies Expands DigiPyro Detector Family with PYD 2592

Excelitas Technologies® Corp., a global technology leader delivering innovative, customized photonic solutions, introduces the new PYD 2592 SMD (surface mount) DigiPyro® Detector. Following the recent announcement of the PYD 2792 SMD DigiPyro, the dual-element PYD 2592 features two standard elements in parallel connection designed into a compact 5x7mm SMD housing with optical window. As the latest additions to Excelitas’ DigiPyro offering, both PYD 2792 and PYD 2592 enable an extremely wide field-of-view (FOV) to allow the flexibility required for complex motion detection applications, including smart home, Internet of Things (IoT), auto lighting, safety and security.

Designed for operation voltage of 1,8 – 3,6V, Excelitas’ PYD 2592 SMD DigiPyro Detectors are compatible with TO-DigiPyro detectors and can facilitate standard PCBA processing and handling. PYD 2592 can be additionally parameter configured (bandpass, threshold) and supports sleep/wake-up function to the linked µP/MCU.

Product features include:

  • Widest FOV on the market for flexible optics design
  • Full SMT compatibility (automatic handling and assembly in standardized PCBA processes)
  • Low package profile, with the lowest z-height on the market, to allow shallow optics design
  • Low supply voltage
  • Low power consumption
  • Battery operation

“We are excited to announce the new PYD 2592 sensor as the latest addition to our innovative DigiPyro detector family,” said Fred Plotz, Product Manager | IR Sensing at Excelitas. “The unique design of the PYD 2592 and PYD 2792 sensors streamlines integration to the host system with a significantly reduced form factor and internal integrated circuitry to convert the element signals into a 14bit digital output. As a result, OEM customers can develop exceptional new products and achieve competitive market advantages for a growing list of applications – from smart home to IoT and beyond.”

DigiPyro PYD 2592 and PYD 2792 sensors will be on display at Photonics West, February 1 – 6, 2020. Visit Excelitas at booth #1149 to learn more.
