Contactless IR Temperature Module
Designed by Mark Little
 
The MLX90615 module is a contact-less Infrared Temperature Sensor. The sensor provides a measure of the ambient temperature of the sensor and of the object at which it is pointed.

The device is factory calibrated for a sensor temperature in the range -40°C to +125°C, and -70°C to +380°C for the object temperature. The device has an accuracy of 0.5°C over a 0 to +50°C range for both the sensor and object. The device will communicate with Raspberry Pi using a SMBus compatible interface.
