The MLX90620 FIRray sensing device from Melexis uses noncontact temperature measurement technology to create a thermography solution. Covering a range of -20 to +300°C (-4 to +572°F), the 16 x 4 in (406 x 102 mm) far IR thermopile array produces a target area map of heat values in real time, without a single point sensor or microbolometer device. The MLX90620 improves safety and simplifies thermal imaging by capturing 64 pixel images in 2-D. Features include an adjustable frame rate of 0.5 to 64 Hz with ±1.5° accuracy levels. Two field-of-view options are available, and a high-speed digital interface and triggered synchronization mode allow use individually or combined with multiple devices to form a larger imaging resolution array. Applications include close range blind-spot and pedestrian detection.
