Heimann Sensors Review
From IPVM members only article Aug2020 – IPVM released article covering Heimann. Heimann is one of the two main thermopile sensors (aka infrared) suppliers. China buys Heimanns and Melexis for use in its temperature tablets. Those are typically complemented by a camera and some software which typically highlights AI in the first sentence. These tablets generally retail on China markets for sub-1000 but there are relabelers in the U.S. charging much higher. KMA is a member of IPVM.

We spoke with Heimann Sensor, and in this report, we examine:
- Who is Heimann Sensor
- What type of sensors Heimann offers
- Are Heimann sensors accurate for medical applications
- How are thermopiles different from microbolometers
- Worldwide demand causing long lead times
We would note in the case of FDA 510K submittals and approvals that there are none for infrared touchless temperature systems such as infrared. These devices have been adapted from the microwave, automotive (defoggers) and other industry uses.
