THERMAL HAT is an M5StickC-compatible human infrared thermal imaging. Built-in MLX90640 thermopile sensor that measures the surface temperature of an object and generates a thermal image through a temperature gradient formed by the surface temperature. Resolution is 32 x 24)
MLX90640 Infrared (IR) sensor arrays offer high resolution and the ability to work reliably in harsh environments. Compared to expensive high-end thermal imaging cameras, Hat-Thermal is a cost-effective alternative. Relatively general Micro-bolometer, the advantage of this sensor is that it does not require frequent re-calibration, thus ensuring continuity of detection and reducing system maintenance costs. The field of view provides a wide-angle version (110 ° × 75 °).
The I2C address is 0x33. (GOIO 0/26)
Works as expected. What a neat device and use it in my lab to detect heat from my circuit board components.
