This project shows how to interface the GY-90615 IR temperature sensor with the Arduino UNO. Recently, I had to use the sensor for monitoring coffee temperature and from all the things I learnt about the sensor, I felt it necessary to share this knowledge with everyone else in a simplified manner. I initially bought the GY-90615 package but as I started to solder the connectors onto it, the resistors fell off and there was no way for me to solder them back on. So, I used the MLX90615 sensor on the unit by itself and connected it in a different way which is shown in the second schematic. For the resistors, I used two 4.7kohm each and a 0.1uF Capacitor.
Feel free to watch my YouTube video for the tutorial at:
Shown are two schematics, one for the GY-90615 module and one for the MLX90615 sensor by itself. Follow the wiring on these schematics and use the code below to run it.
