Outline
This application note provides a supplement to the data sheet for the D6T series non-contact
temperature sensor – by adding special instructions and usage information.
*Please see Omron’s website for the most current datasheet.
2
Structure
The D6T series sensors are made up of a cap with silicon
lens, MEMS thermopile sensor chips, and dedicated analog
circuit and a logic circuit for converting to a digital
temperature value on a single board through one connector.
Fig.1 Module outline ( Reference )
3
Dimensions
Small PCB is one of the features (14mm x 18mm and 11.6mm x 12mm). The module also has a
retention area and holes usable for proper alignment. For connector details please see Section6.

Operating principle
・
・
・
・
An outline of the basic measuring operation is as follows.
The silicon lens collects radiated heat (far-infrared ray)
emitted from an object onto the thermopile sensor in the
module. (※1)
The radiated heat (far-infrared ray) produces an
electromotive force on the thermopile sensor.
The analog circuit calculates the temperature of an object by
using the electromotive force value and a measured
temperature value inside the module.(※2)
The measured value is outputted through an I2C bus.

( ※ 2) D6T-1A-01 / D6T-1A-02 / D6T-8L-09 calculate the
Silicon lens
measured value (Object temperature) by using a temperature
conversion circuit in the ASIC.

Features
The non-contact temperature sensor measures the surface temperature of an object.
D6T-44L-06 and D6T-8L-06 and D6T-1A-01/02 have sensor chip arrays of 16 channels (4x4) and
8 channels (1x8) and 1 channel (1x1) respectively. By mounting the signal processing circuit
close to the sensor chip, a low noise temperature measurement is realized.
The module can also be used for detecting the presence of human beings. Omron’s
non-contact temperature sensor can solve the shortcomings of a conventional pyroelectric
sensor, which cannot catch the signal of a stationary person because the sensor detects the
change of signal [in principle]. Moreover, Omron’s non-contact temperature sensor continually
detects the far-infrared ray of an object, while the pyroelectric models do not.
(a) Pyroelectric sensor output
(b)Non-contact temperature sensor output
Fig.3 Difference between pyroelectric and non-contact temperature sensor
The non-contact temperature sensor achieves its sensitivity characteristic over an object view
angle by using a silicon lens. FOV (Field Of View) – an indication of view angle – is generally
specified as an area angle of 50% for maximum sensitivity.

[D6T-44L/-8L/-1A] Application Note No.MDMK-15-0169
Please note that the sensitivity area is wider than the FOV specified area. When an object to be
measured is smaller than the sensitivity area, the background temperature effects the
measurements.
Though Omron’s D6T sensor corrects a temperature measurement value by using a reference
heat source (blackbody furnace), the measurement’s value is influenced by the emissivity of the
specific material of the object to be measured, and the surface shape of the occupant relative to
the sensitivity area.

Fig.5 Changing factor of measurement by distance
Note: The occupied area in FOV becomes smaller with increasing distance
and the background temperature prevails.
In cases where a D6T sensor is used for detecting human beings, the application will be
limited to close range when the detection programming scheme only judges by temperature value.
To extend the detection distance, improvements to the judgment accuracy can be made via
software programming, considering time change, heat source location and human being
movement.

6.5 PEC check routine Example
PEC is the data used for the error checking method using CRC-8. PEC and is appended to the
end of the communication output. You can detect communication failures using the PEC,
improving the reliability of the data. (For more information, please refer to the SMBus
specification)
unsigned char calc_crc( unsigned char
{
int index;
unsigned char temp;
data )
for(index=0;index<8;index++){
temp = data;
data <<= 1;
if(temp & 0x80) data ^= 0x07;
}
return data;
}
int D6T_checkPEC( char buf , int pPEC );
{
unsigned char crc;
int i;
crc = calc_crc( 0x14 );
crc = calc_crc( 0x4C ^ crc );
crc = calc_crc( 0x15 ^ crc );
for(i=0;i<pPEC;i++){
crc = calc_crc( readbuff[i] ^ crc );
}
return (crc == readbuff[pPEC]);
}
Other case : Using Stop-Start condition without Repeat Start Condition,
int D6T_checkPEC( char buf , int pPEC );
{
unsigned char crc;
int i;
crc = calc_crc( 0x15 );
for(i=0;i<pPEC;i++){
crc = calc_crc( readbuff[i] ^ crc );
}
return (crc == readbuff[pPEC]);

6.6 Detect routine of wait status (Clock-stretching)
Our sensor may require a wait request of the master. On the master side, it is necessary to deal
with this wait process. In many I2C modules in the MCU, there is a feature that can do this
automatically. However, if using the I2C software library, the user may have to deal with this wait
process manually. D6T-1A-01/D6T-1A-02/D6T-8L-09 does not have a clock stretch.

6.7 Communication time out
It will be communication time out if Low period of SDA and SCL Line continues 1 sec the
following time.
・D6T-44L-06 / D6T-8L-06
: 1sec
・D6T-1A-01 / D6T-1A-02 / D6T-8L-09
: 70msec
In addition, If the sensor is determined that communication time-out, it returns a NACK to Write
access. Read value will be FFFFh is Read access.
We recommended the check data using the PEC that can be judged to be abnormal is read
value.
6.8 Cover Material
If you opt to put a cover over the sensor, carefully consider the performance of the material in
regards to how well it passes through radiant heat. High-density polyethylene (HDPE, grade far
infrared transmission) is a good cover material option. If the cover is thick, the transmittance
decreases. It is best to use as thin a cover as possible to keep a minimal impact on detection
performance. The internal sensors can then show through. (as shown in the example pictured
below).

Question
Answer
Can the field of view (FOV) angle be increased?
No. OMRON set the FOV in consideration of the constraints imposed by the
thickness and refractive index of the silicon lens. Measurement distance is reduced
as the FOV of one element increases. Therefore, we can not simply widen the
viewing angle. A good way to measure a wide range, is to install multiple sensors, or
mount the senor on a movable/rotating base.
Are there any effects on an infrared remote controller?
No. The silicon lens we are using will not pass through most near-infrared and
visible light below 1.2 [μm] wavelength. Therefore, it does not affect the infrared
signal of the remote controller. The far infrared rays that are emitted as radiant heat
are about 4 to 14 [μm].
Is it possible to distinguish between humans, animals, and appliances?
No. In the non-contact temperature module, you can only acquire surface
temperature measurement data. Different objects of the same temperature will read
the same. Further discrimination must be based on the behavior of the measured
data to distinguish the object by software on the user side. By developing software
designed with your specific application in mind, the determination accuracy may
possibly be improved.
What is the distance range that can detect the presence of people?
This is greatly affected by the decision performance and software installation
conditions. It is also affected by the size of the object to be measured and the area
of the FOV per element. A rough guideline distance is about 5 to 6 meters.
Can the power consumption be reduced?
No. The D6T thermal sensor does not have a power saving mode. Therefore, in
order to reduce power consumption it is necessary to shut off the power.
Is there a sensor that can operate on a supply voltage of 3[V]?
Is there an I2C slave address that I can change?
No. The D6T thermal sensor does not support them.

Glossary

Thermopile
Thermal sensors utilize the Seebeck effect in which thermoelectric force is generated due to the
temperature difference at the contact points between two different kinds of metal. A thermopile is
created by serially connecting thermocouples. By creating hot junctions on highly heat-resistant
dielectric membranes, and cold junctions on highly heat-conductive silicon, it is possible to
achieve high-speed response and high-energy conversion efficiency.

NETD (Described in the catalog)
Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference.
Definition: An indication of the amount of noise that is expressed as a temperature. It becomes a
measure of the minimum value of the change in the measured temperature that can be
determined. It is sometimes referred to as temperature resolution.

FOV
Field of View. FOV range is often defined in the range 50% of the peak sensitivity.
