IrThermo Click 5V features MLX90614ESF-AAA single zone Infrared Thermometer module capable of non-contact temperature measurements. It is calibrated in wide temperature ranges: -40 to 85°C for the ambient temperature and -70 to +380°C for the object temperature (-20 to 120°C in PWM mode). IrThermo Click™ communicates with target board microcontroller via mikroBUS™ I2C lines (SCL, SDA) or PWM line. These features make this board ideal for automotive, industrial temperature control, movement detection, air conditioning control and more. The board is designed to use 5V power supply only.
Each body with a temperature above the absolute zero emits an electromagnetic radiation, which is proportional to its intrinsic temperature. A part of this intrinsic radiation is infrared radiation, which can be used to measure a body's temperature. The devices that measures infrared electromagnetic radiation and converts it to the temperature are so-called non-contact thermometers.
