This is an infrared thermometer designed for non-contact temperature sensing. An internal 17-bit ADC and a powerful DSP contribute to the MLX90614’s high accuracy and resolution. It has a huge number of applications including body temperature measurment and movement detection. The sensor has a field of view of 35 degrees and returns the average temperature value of all objects within this field of view.
GY-906 MLX90614ESF non-contact infrared thermometer for use with Arduino, or any microcontroller that can communicate with it through it’s I2C interface.
This sensor comes with a breakout board with all of the components needed for operation and two types of pins.
