Digital plug & play infrared thermometer in ultra small TO-can - MLX90615

Product description

The MLX90615 is a miniature infrared thermometer for non-contact temperature measurements. Both the IR sensitive thermopile detector chip and the signal conditioning ASIC are integrated in the same miniature TO-46 can.

With its small size, this infrared thermometer is especially suited for medical applications like ear or forehead thermometers or other applications where "small things make a big difference".

The infrared thermometer comes factory calibrated with a digital SMBus output giving full access to the measured temperature in the complete temperature range(s) with a resolution of 0.02 °C. The sensor achieves an accuracy of ±0.2°C within the relevant medical temperature range. The user can choose to configure the digital output to be PWM.

Our temperature sensing solutions are used in a number of medical applications and we are currently encountering a high demand. Therefore the lead time can take longer than usual. It is our goal to deliver on our commitments as best as we can, within the boundaries of what is or will be feasible.
