MLX90615-Melexis

by mycrystt on Fri Jun 12, 2020 9:07 am

Hi,
i am using MLX90615 Sensor to measure the body temperature of Human with Emissivity value 0.98.
MLX90615 is connected to ATMEGA328P through I2C.
Body distance from the sensor is around 2-3 CM while measuring Temperature .
i compare the Temperature given by MLX90615 sensor with Infrared Temperature Sensor Which Is Available In Market.
But there is a difference of 2-3 degree Celsius. MLX90615 giving 2-3 degree Celsius lower than Infrared Temperature Sensor reading.

So Please suggest me to how i can achieve more accurate reading of MLX90615.
is there any more setting in MLX90615?
