Using our awesome little infra-red temperature sensor, ScottC has created a great analogue temperature gauge. By mounting our Eleven and IRTEMP beneath the display gauge, the entire unit has been made portable yet useful. Thus by simply pointing the gauge at an item, a physical needle moves across a scale indicating the spot temperature, for example:
That's pretty awesome, and a great framework for anyone looking to measure temperature without making a physical contact, so click here to get started. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
An infra-red temperature sensor module? Yes - with the Freetronics IRTEMP:
This module is perfect for contactless temperature measurement. It is our special version of an industrial infrared remote thermometer units with an onboard power supply, communication support and a software library and examples supplied. Very simple to use with an Arduino as we have provided a Getting Started guide and Arduino library. For more information and to order, click here.
