Non-contact temperature sensor. It is used for measurement of IR radiation and does not require the direct touch. The optical system collects collects the radiation from its field of view, and the collected energy is converted into electrical signals, and further, to the temperature values. MLX90614 has a low noise amplifier for signal processing. The chip consists of A/C 17-bit converter and DSP processor, therefore it gives accurate and reliable results. It works withthe Arduino modules. The kit includes a cable adapted toGravity DFRobot IO Expansion Shield.
The product is compatible with Arduino
Sample code and detailed information can be found inthe user guide.
The module works with any microcontroller with I2C interface. To read data, it is sufficient to connect the power source and output pins to respective inputs of the microcontroller.
