Pyreos, a manufacturer of miniature, rugged, pyroelectric, mid-infrared sensors and detectors which respond faster and minimise power consumption, today announced 3.6 times revenue growth in its ezPyroTM digital surface mount products over the 12 months to the end of Q1 2019, compared with the previous year.
The trend is set to continue through 2019 with a strong start to the year. Customer systems in production include breath analysis, home-hub flame detection units, industrial flame detection and motion-sensing intelligent IoT parking management systems. This growth trajectory builds on the launch of the product in 2016 after several years’ development and reflects increasing demand from a wide range of markets for surface mount digital detectors using thin film pyroelectric mid-infrared sensor technology.
Pyreos is the first supplier of surface mount digital pyroelectric sensors for gas, flame and food analysis. This flagship product, ezPyroTM has fast response and instant switch-on as well as excellent characteristics over wide temperature ranges and through thermal shocks, making it a unique solution for gas measurement, flame detection and motion and gesture detection. It is the smallest pyroelectric detector available and its speed enables ultra-low power consumption.
“The market for infrared sensors for detection systems is growing and continually innovating,” said Andrew Wallace, CEO at Pyreos. “We are delighted with the exponential growth that we are seeing in digital surface mount systems and by collaborating closely with our customers, we continue to anticipate what is needed from our sensor technology. We have also significantly increased our distribution channels in Europe and online globally in the past six months and this puts the technology in reach of a wider customer base.”
