TMP006 IR Sensor: How to predict and adjust the field of view


<p>Too hot to handle? Not anymore! The TMP006 is the first in a series of temperature sensors that measure the temperature of an object within 150 degree field of view, as well as the ambient temperature, without the need to make contact with the object. In this video, Ian Williams, apps engineer in Precision Analog, demonstrates how to easily gauge the TMP006's field of view using a paper cone method. He also explains how you can design a metal cover with an aperture that allows you to restrict the field of view to a tighter angle in order to be more focused on the target object for better results in the end application.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p></p> <p><img style="visibility: hidden; width: 0px; height: 0px;" border="0" src="http://c.gigcount.com/wildfire/IMP/CXNID=2000002.11NXC/bT*xJmx*PTEzNTQ1NTI1MzAwNzUmcHQ9MTM1NDU1MjUzMjM4NCZwPSZkPSZnPTImbz1hMTQ3MTAzYjY1Y2Q*OWExOTdkMjM5NWIx/NzhmODMyMSZvZj*w.gif" width="0" height="0" /] [object id="kaltura_player_1354552529" name="kaltura_player_1354552529" data="http://www.kaltura.com/index.php/kwidget/wid/1_5sddw8m1/uiconf_id/2342281" width="400" height="330" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allownetworking="all" allowscriptaccess="always"> <a href="http://corp.kaltura.com">video platform</a><a href="http://corp.kaltura.com/video_platform/video_management">video management</a><a href="http://corp.kaltura.com/solutions/video_solution">video solutions</a><a href="http://corp.kaltura.com/video_platform/video_publishing">video player</a>[/object]</p>
