Thermal Infrared Thermopile Sensor for High Temperature Measurements


The Melexis MLX90616 is a thermopile infrared sensor with integrated signal conditioning electronics and electronic stabilization function for accurate measurements in demanding applications.

The MLX90616 is intended to be used in applications where the user places a lens in front of the sensor to adjust the field of view (FOV) to his application. The sensor-lens combination temperature measurement must be calibrated by the customer. For integration in thermometer guns it comes with an 8 to 12 micron optical filter.

The MLX90616 has been specifically designed to measure high object temperatures with a maximum of 1.030ºC. Melexis provides the necessary software to do this in a typical engineering or production environment.

The integrated electronics will calculate the object temperature based on the internal temperature, the thermopile output and the calibration data stored in the EEPROM by the thermometer manufacturer during his calibration process. The MLX90616 comes in a standard TO-39 package.
