A bird watching camera is a special photographic device used to capture high-definition images of bird activity. Among them, the PIR pyroelectric sensor is an important sensing device, which can sense the movement of birds and automatically trigger the camera shutter. Next, we will introduce the sensing principle of the pyroelectric sensor in detail.
PIR pyroelectric sensor is mainly composed of sensor chip, pyroelectric sheet, Fresnel lens and protective shell. Among them, the pyroelectric sheet is the core component, which is a material capable of sensing temperature changes. When the pyroelectric sheet is irradiated by infrared rays, the charge distribution in the material will change, thus generating a weak current.
After this weak current is sensed by the sensor chip, it will be focused and directed through the Fresnel lens, and finally trigger the camera shutter. The main principle of this process is that when a bird enters the field of view of a bird-watching camera, the infrared rays emitted by its body will be sensed by the pyroelectric sheet, thereby generating an electric current. After the change of this current is detected by the sensor chip, the position of the bird will be located through the Fresnel lens, and the camera shutter will be triggered to take pictures.
It should be noted that PIR pyroelectric sensors are not the only sensing devices for bird watching cameras. Some high-end bird watching cameras also use motion sensors, vision sensors and other sensing devices to achieve more accurate bird activity capture. However, no matter what kind of sensing device is used, the sensing principle of the bird watching camera is based on the perception of bird activities and the automatic triggering of the camera shutter.
In short, the PIR pyroelectric sensor is an important sensing device in bird watching cameras, and its sensing principle is based on the perception of bird activities and automatically triggering the camera shutter. In actual use, bird watching cameras will also use other sensing devices to achieve more accurate bird activity capture.
