This project is for making infrared thermometer with Arduino, the circuit is put in MDF case look-liked a medical infrared thermometer on market.
The sensor infrared thermometer GY-906 is used to measure object temperature without contact, it can measure from -70 to 380 degree C in very quick time. Please note that, this sensor can measure in short distance, about 2cm.
So you can use this for personal using, or gift to your child, also use it for learn Arduino in funny way
It tooks me about 2 weeks of work to complete from circuit, MDF case design, and document. I hope it is meaning for some one
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Design the Case MDF
I use MDF wood 3mm to make the case. Firstly, the case is design in Corel Draw (see attachment file for the file)
Then, using laser cnc laser machine to cut and engrave letter on it. In this step, you need skill of using cnc laser machine.
Step 2: Make Circuit
Make a circuit as picture. For sure, install it in bread board, download the code to see if it can works or not
