Double encapsulation for longer lifetime

Infrared Detectors

The infrared detectors Hertzstück from trinamix GmbH are double encapsulated: The sensors are not only protected by a TO-package, but also by a novel thin-film encapsulation directly on the chip. This patent-pending technique ensures longer lifetime compared to conventional infrared sensors. They can reliably detect in safety-relevant applications.

For safety critical applications

In addition, the high detectivity of Hertzstück sensors (at room temperature) increases the reliability of safety-critical applications like moisture detection, gas sensing, spectroscopy, spark detection, flame control or chemical analysis. Current electro-optical devices using PbS sensors are optimized for TO-packages. Hertzstück double-encapsulated sensors are fully compatible and can readily replace existing single-encapsulated sensors. Hertzstück sensors are available as PbS and PbSe infrared detectors with spectral range from 1 µm – 5 µm, up to 3 µm in PbS and up to 5 µm PbSe in TO5 and TO8. The infrared detectors Hertzstück are developed and completely manufactured at a production site in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
