THERMAL is a thermal image Unit contains a thermopile sensor named MLX90640. It can be used to measure the surface temperature of an object and form a thermographic image by a temperature gradient composed of different surface temperatures. The image resolution is 32 x 24.
The MLX90640 Infrared (IR) sensor array combines high resolution and reliable operation in harsh environments, providing a cost-effective alternative to more expensive high-end thermal imaging cameras. Unlike the case of a micro-bolometer, the sensor does not require frequent recalibration, ensuring continuous monitoring and reducing system cost.
The field of view (FoV) option includes a standard 55° x 35° version and a wide angle version of 110° x 75° for distances up to 7m. This Unit is 110°×75° FoV, also known as the BAA package.

Extremely good value for money. If I were to be critical I would have preferred the narrower FOV for the MLX90640.
Thermal Camera Unit (MLX90640)
Sensor works really well. Adapted the existing Github sketch to program a thermal camera application running on Core2. Thank you M5Stack.
Just amazing, work great
The cost of Thermal camera is well-spent money because I use it in my house on heater vent monitoring way up in the ceiling. The camera shows me the exact temperature I'm looking for. Great Product!
