  • Managing less than ±1mm tolerance in alignment sensor and optics


  1. Choose high transmittance material for 8~13um wave length

Overall performance of device is combination of the performance of TMOS sensor and the performance of lens. One of main factor of the performance of lens is transmittance in Far infrared wavelength.

Device Performance = TMOS sensor * Lens transmittance rate

Typical FIR transmittance rate of black colored lens is less than 10% at FT IR measurement.

Despite the performance of the TMOS sensor being 100%, the final device's performance is only 7% due to a lens transmittance rate of 7%. Even if the sensor improves its performance by 50% every year, the final device can only achieve a 3.5% improvement in performance each year. Therefore, it is necessary to collaborate with companies that possess high transmittance rates materials. A high understanding of materials can greatly affect the final product.


  1. Choose stable and less degraded material for the use cases

To properly utilize the presence and temperature measurement functions of the TMOS sensor, it is important to choose materials with high transmittance rates, such as Poly FIR200. However, it is not enough to simply select materials with high transmittance rates. It is also necessary to understand how the transmittance and properties change due to additives used for production, such as pigments, anti-oxidization, and UV resistors.


There are materials available on the market, such as SBK150, which is already compounded as pellet contained pigments, anti-oxidization, and UV resistor. Selecting these materials can be a way to speed up development and reduce unnecessary costs.

  1. Managing less than ±1mm tolerance in alignment sensor and optics

TMOS sensors are more sensitive to tolerance variations compared to PIR sensors. Generally, PIR sensors show satisfactory results at the ±0.2mm level of tolerance, while TMOS sensors can show satisfactory results in environments with tolerances of ±0.1mm or less. This difference is due to the difference in the size of the elements in each sensor.

Tolerance analysis is essential for ensuring that your design is robust and can be manufactured within the desired tolerances. It involves modeling the effects of post-molded shrinkage for plastic lenses on system performance and making design adjustments to minimize their impact. Lenses and housing tolerance must be correspondent to TMOS sensing element size, for example, tolerance for PIR sensor lenses is + 0.2 mm, but TMOS sensor has smaller size and it is recommended to decrease tolerances for Lenses and housings to +0.1 mm in order to maintain detector specification.
