The MLX90614 Infrared Temperature Sensor is a Contactless Infrared (IR) Digital Temperature Sensor that can be used to measure the temperature of a particular object ranging from -70? C to 382.2?C. The sensor uses IR rays to measure the temperature of the object without any physical contact and communicates to the micro-controller using the I2C protocol.
The key feature of MLX90614 is that it is a contactless IR temperature sensor with high accuracy. So it can be used in industries to measure the temperature of moving objects like a rotating motor shaft. Due to its high accuracy and precision, it is also used in a wide range of commercial, health care, and household applications like room temperature monitoring, body temperature measurement, etc.
