Thermopile Infrared Detector is used to measure object temperature from distance using infrared rays emitted by object. It is made up of small thermocouple connected serially or parallel on silicon chip, which absorb energy and produce output signals. Each thermocouple consist of two plates with opposite polarity and temperature difference between these plates is proportional to output voltage. The higher the temperature difference, more infrared rays emitted and, so more output response. These detector gives advantages of noncontact temperature measurement over traditional contact based temp detectors, in addition properties such as response to broad infrared spectrum, no bias needed and stable response lead to made them unique and more popular over the period. Thermopile are also used to monitor and control the movement of parts such as heater rolls in laser printers and for some instances to generate electrical energy from radioactive material, combustion, solar wind, laser beam and heat of electrical machines. Since, recent research it is possible to estimate human body location using thermopile infrared detectors. It is very important to select suitable type of Thermopile infrared detector for desired device and performance. These are used in fields of medical, automotive industry, household electric appliances, farming, transport and navigation.
