Axetris Infrared Sources

Pacer International has signed an agreement with Swiss company Leister Process Technologies to distribute their Axetris range of infrared light sources for gas sensing applications in the mid-infrared range.

Axetris IR sources are suited for compact IR gas detection modules where a high emissivity, high reliability and low power consumption are key requirements. Axetris IR sources are micro-machined, electrically modulated thermal infrared emitters featuring black body radiation characteristics, low power consumption, high emissivity and a long lifetime.

The patented design is based on a resistive heating element integrated onto a thin dielectric membrane which is suspended on a micro-machined silicon structure. All products are manufactured at Axetris’ micro-technology clean room facilities in central Switzerland.
