- Include features such as low power consumption, low maintenance and low sensitivity to mechanical shocks
- These small surface-mount devices (SMD) can be used in portable and battery-powered detectors
Built with hybrid micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) technology, these environmental sensors come in a small surface-mount device (SMD) for use in portable and battery-powered detectors. Their features such as low power consumption, low maintenance and low sensitivity to mechanical and thermal shock allow for stable performance and a lifespan of up to 15 years, making them ideal for small, smart or Internet of Things (IoT) devices in industrial, consumer, automotive and medical applications. Compatibility with industry-standard I2C communication enables plug-and-play connectivity to microcontrollers making these sensors easy to configure, tune and calibrate.
KEMET’s environmental PIR sensors, which use the standard semiconductor manufacturing process, are well-suited for growth in the environmental sensor market. According to a report by 360 Market Updates, the global environmental sensor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4 per cent from 2020 to 2025 and reach US$ 1550.1 million by 2025.
