InPlay and Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. to Debut Thermal Diode Infrared Sensor at Sensors Converge 2023

IRVINE, CA, USA, June 19, 2023/ — InPlay is thrilled to announce its latest collaboration with Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc., set to debut at Sensors Converge 2023 this week in Santa Clara, California. This marks the launch of Mitsubishi Electric’s innovative thermal diode infrared sensor, MelDIR, expertly integrated with InPlay’s NanoBeacon technology.

MelDIR, Mitsubishi Electric’s cutting-edge sensor, stands out for its exceptional ability to detect heat sources with a high pixel count and high-temperature resolution. This infrared sensor shines even in environments with poor visibility, thus expanding its application range and offering users unparalleled accuracy.

InPlay’s NanoBeacon technology enhances the functionality of MelDIR. The Bluetooth technology incorporated into the NanoBeacon sends real-time notifications to users’ apps when temperatures reach preset thresholds. This feature ensures constant monitoring and timely alerts, making it invaluable to various industries and individuals alike.

Sensors Converge attendees are invited to visit booths 1434 and 1052 to witness a live demonstration of this dynamic partnership. The live demo will showcase the real-time capabilities and advanced features of this collaborative solution.
