NCIR 2 Thermometer Unit (MLX90614)


NCIR 2 Thermometer Unit is a specialized thermometer unit that utilizes the MLX90614 temperature sensor, allowing for non-contact temperature measurements. This feature makes it particularly useful in socially distant scenarios, where maintaining physical distance is important.The MLX90614 temperature sensor is factory calibrated and offers a wide temperature range for accurate measurements. It can measure ambient temperature within the range of -40 to 125 ˚C, and object temperature within the range of -70 to 380 ˚C. This versatility enables the unit to measure temperatures in various environments and applications.NCIR 2 Thermometer Unit incorporates an embedded STM32 microcontroller (MCU) that processes the temperature data. The MCU provides additional functionality, such as high/low temperature alert functions, allowing users to set temperature thresholds and receive notifications when those thresholds are exceeded. The unit also features a buzzer, RGB LED, function button, and reset button on board for convenient control and interaction.NCIR 2 Thermometer Unit can be used in two ways. It can work with the M5Stack Controllers through the I2C protocol, allowing for seamless integration into existing M5Stack projects. Alternatively, it can work as a standalone unit, functioning independently without the need for additional hardware.This unit has a wide range of applications. In the medical field, it can be used for non-contact temperature measurements in hospitals, clinics, or other healthcare settings. In environmental monitoring, it can provide temperature data for monitoring temperature-sensitive environments or for climate control systems. Additionally, in home automation applications, it can be utilized for temperature monitoring and control within smart homes or buildings.
