TMP007 infrared thermopile sensor Measures -40 to +125 °C with 14-bit resolution Interrupt pin for setting off alerts I2C interface with selectable address Can use either 3.3V or 5V power supply
IrThermo 2 click is a non-contact temperature measurement solution. The click board carries the TMP007 infrared thermopile sensor with an integrated math engine. The sensor absorbs the infrared radiation emitted by the target object (within the sensor's field of view) and the integrated math engine calculates its temperature by comparing it with the temperature of the silicon die. The measurement range of the sensor is between –40 and 125 °C with a 14-bit resolution.
The data are communicated to your target board's MCU through mikroBUS I2C pins, but there's also an Alert pin that can send an interrupt when the watched object reaches a certain temperature.
The sensor comes factory calibrated, but you can adjust the calibration coefficients for specific applications to correct for range, field of view, object shape, or environmental factors.
As a contactless measurement solution, IrThermo 2 click is ideal for monitoring hard-to-reach objects (e.g. batteries or heatsinks inside a casing), or hazardous objects (e.g. high voltage or toxic). Also, the target object also be fluid, in motion, etc.
The board has two ADDR SEL solder jumpers that allow you to specify the I2C address. They are in positions 0,0 by default. Another solder jumper allows you to set the module for 3.3V or 5V power supply. It is in the 3.3V position by default.
Note: The picture shows the board with through-hole headers. The board now comes populated with male pin headers already soldered for your convenience. The board's user manual has yet to be updated to remove the soldering instructions.
mikroBUS Click Boards Overview Click boards plug directly into a mikroBUS socket. mikroBUS is a specially designed plug-and-play pinout standard. The sockets are found on Clicker boards, the Flip & Click Arduino/Python-compatible board, the Quail board, these mikromedia shields, the Microchip Curiosity board, and development systems from mikroElektronika (V7 systems and later).
You also can connect Click boards to many other popular platforms via these adapters:
- PC — Click USB Adapter (MIKROE-1433)
- Arduino — Arduino UNO click shield (MIKROE-1581) or Arduino Mega click shield (MIKROE-1900)
- Raspberry Pi — Pi click shield (MIKROE-1512) or Pi 2 click shield (MIKROE-1879)
- BeagleBone Black — BeagleBone click shield (MIKROE-1596) or mikroBUS Cape (MIKROE-1857)
- STM32F3 Discovery — STM32F3 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1447)
- STM32F4 Discovery — STM32F4 Discovery Shield (MIKROE-1481)
- Stellaris LM4F120 LaunchPad / Tiva TM4C123G LaunchPad — Click BOOSTER PACK (MIKROE-1363)
- Freescale Freedom — FRDM-KL46Z click shield (MIKROE-1795) or FRDM-K64F click shield (MIKROE-1794)
In addition, it is royalty-free to add mikroBUS to your own designs. Visit the mikroBUS Category to see the full line of Click boards.
