We like our food to be as fresh as can be. Vacuum-Sealing
packaging can extend the shelf life of food products by
preventing exposure to the natural atmosphere, thereby
slowing down the microbial deterioration of the product.
Infrared temperature sensors or IR Sensors function in a similar way: they detect infrared radiation and convert it into a signal to process. Only infrared temperature sensors don’t pick up the visible light.
