Pyroelectric Detectors & Sensors for Proximity Light Switching

Excelitas' infrared technologies are sensing what is needed for energy conservation. Proximity sensors are used to switch lighting on automatically when someone approaches. Lights are “smartly” kept off when no one is present. Excelitas’ pyroelectric infrared detectors, which are sensitive to changes in infrared energy within their field of view, are perfect tools for energy conservation.

Did You Know?

Excelitas sensors – including our proximity light switching sensors - reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 22 million metric tons each year. That is roughly the amount of CO2 released by two medium-sized coal-fired power stations in Europe.
