Struggling with MLX90640

by sensorlife on Tue Apr 06, 2021 11:47 am

Hi there!
Currently I am trying to get a broken MLX90640 working again. I have replaced the sensor and it works with my C++ code. However when using the python code from the Adafruit library i get the following error:

raise RuntimeError("Adjacent outlier pixels")

When I use a different sensor the code works fine. Any suggestions how to fix this?

What board are you running Python on?

It sounds like you have multiple boards and only one is acting odd? Since it's a Pimoroni board, please contact Pimoroni to see if they may have some ideas about what might be happening:
