The World Leader in Infrared Thermopile Detectors

Since 1977, Dexter Research Center has been a leader in infrared thermopile-based solutions. Today we provide the largest selection of thermopiles in the world including high quality, high output Bismuth-Antimony thin film and silicon-based radiation sensing thermopile detectors. We specialize in customizing detectors to meet your specifications to give you superior detector performance and subsequent superior system performance. We also provide a variety of integrated solutions including digital detectors and modules.

Whether it's a standard or a custom designed detector, an integrated module or the opportunity to use our 40 plus years of infrared detection knowledge and engineering services to help you design your product, Dexter Research Center, Inc. is positioned to be your partner.

Thermopile Products
Thermopiles, passive infrared sensors, are widely used in science and industry. We provide the widest selection in the industry.

Applications include:
- Non-contact temperature measurements
- tympanic thermometers
- automobile climate control and occupancy sensing
- process temperature monitoring
- household appliances
- radiometer
- Gas analysis in medical, automotive, and petroleum industries
- Hazard control including flame and explosion detection
- Horizon sensors for scientific, space, and hobbyist applications

Infrared Imaging Products
We currently offer the state-of-the-art SLA32, a 2 16 staggered element silicon-based thermopile array. It offers a proven design with no readout electronics for spectral analysis and line temperature measurements.

Integrated Temperature Measurement Solutions
We provide several integrated solutions to solve your infrared measurement challenges with our infrared non-contact temperature sensing module.

Thermacon Motion Sensors
These concealed, passive infrared motion sensors provide a versatile solution that is ideal for exit/entry control, guard tour detection, personnel motion detection, automatic time delays and spot detection.
