Grid-EYE Unit: Infrared Array Sensors
Narrow-Angle Type: AMG8854M01
Combines Four Grid-EYE Sensors to Create a Complete Package for People Detection and Counting!

The expansion of the Grid-EYE infrared array sensor product line with the addition of the Grid-EYE narrow angle type, offers a field of view of 35.6°! This allows the Grid-EYE sensor to focus on closer objects with enough pixels to be able to identify and measure those objects.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Narrow angle field of view of 35.6°
  • Reduced from standard of 60° to allow better focus for closer objects
  • Mount on PCB board
  • Module type
  • Environmentally friendly
  • RoHS and REACH compliant
  • Smart building management systems
  • People tracking
  • Air conditioners: to adjust based on temperature of the room

Infrared Array Sensor Grid-EYE Unit: AMGU4241

Infrared array sensor Grid-EYE unit combines four Grid-EYE sensors to create a complete package for people detection and counting.

The Grid-EYE unit combines four Grid-EYE infrared array sensors to increase the detection area up to 3.8m2.

The Grid-EYE unit comes preloaded with firmware capable of detection and counting up to 8 people within this area and while they are in this area it can track their direction of movement. The sensor transmits this information via RS485 using Modbus protocol.

A single Grid-EYE sensor can detect up to a 3m2 area, while the new Grid-EYE unit can detect a base of 3.8m2 and can be adjusted to see up to 4.2m2 with firmware changes. The Grid-EYE unit comes preloaded with firmware to be ready for set up right out of the box to provide people detection and counting information. With standard Grid-EYE sensors, the user has to develop their own detection software. With the Grid-EYE unit, Panasonic has provided a ready solution for people detection and counting.

APPLICATIONS

  • Smart building management systems
  • People tracking
  • Air conditioners: to adjust based on temperature of the room
