Use this sensor to sense the temperature of objects up to 50cm away. Just point the sensor to the object and read the temperature in a microcontroller.
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 measurement and movement detection. The sensor has a field of view of 5 degrees and returns the average temperature value of all objects within this field of view.
GY-906 MLX90614ESF-DCI non-contact infrared thermometer for use with Arduino, or any microcontroller that can communicate with it through its I2C interface.
This sensor comes with a breakout board with all of the components needed for operation and two types of pins.
It has a sensing range from 25 CM -60 cm Approximate.
