trinamiX GmbH based in Ludwigshafen was founded in 2015 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of BASF SE. We are operationally independent and at the same time have access to the expertise and experience of BASF Group.
What drives us? With our technologies we strive to enable humans and machines to capture and understand the world – for improved decision-making and security. With a team of over 125 experts from different fields, we are developing and selling innovative infrared sensing and NIR spectroscopy solutions as well as 3D imaging and distance measurement. Our production and development facility is in Ludwigshafen/Rhein, Germany. Our Managing Director is Dr. Ingmar Bruder.
Our PbS and PbSe near-infrared detectors and arrays have a unique encapsulation for longer lifetime and highest detectivity at room temperature. They can be used for flame monitoring, flame and spark detection, gas sensing, moisture monitoring and NIR spectroscopy.
trinamiX IR detectors excel in various applications and industries:
- Flame monitoring / Spark detection: Measuring IR radiation is an easy way to monitor a flame and to ensure a burner is working correctly. Preventive fire protection systems use IR sensors to detect sparks and protect equipment and plants against fire.
- Gas sensing: Presence and amount of various gases can be detected by measuring at the absorption of IR radiation.
- Moisture monitoring: Infrared detectors determine moisture levels in production and manufacturing.
- NIR spectroscopy: An established analytical method for quality control and process monitoring.
Our PbS and PbSe near-infrared detectors and arrays have a unique encapsulation for longer lifetime and highest detectivity at room temperature. The new thin-film encapsulation allows for a small footprint and bondable contacts. trinamiX detectors are compatible with industry standard production methods and we guarantee extensive quality control.
Nondispersive infrared (NDIR) spectroscopy allows the reliable measurement of various gases including volatile organic compounds (VOC) over a broad concentration range. As compared to electrochemical alternatives, gas monitoring systems based on NDIR are in high demand due to their robustness. This makes them suitable for gas analysis in medical and automotive industry, environmental pollution monitoring, emission monitoring and gas leak detection in the oil, gas and chemical industries.
Measuring IR radiation is an easy way to monitor a flame and to ensure a burner is working correctly. Preventive fire protection systems use IR sensors to detect sparks and protect equipment and plants against fire.
Multiple IR detectors are used in applications requiring presence detection of multiple materials or concentrations of multiple gases. trinamiX PbS and PbSe Multiple Single-Pixel detectors are unique in how they combine multiple IR sensors in a small space. This can simplify development of IR optics as well as making end products both smaller and lighter. The detectors can be used in bare-chip form, without the need for additional hermetically sealed packaging such as TO packages.
