- High emissivity
- Excellent general purpose calibration
- Large aperture sizes
- High accuracy, high resolution
- Manufactured and tested to meet rigid quality control standards
The M315X-HT blackbody calibration sources are designed to satisfy the exacting parameters of infrared focal plane array detectors, thermal imaging, and FLIR systems testing in projection scene and field applications where higher temperatures are required. These calibration sources combine high emissivity along with unchallenged stability and uniformity.
The M315X-HT blackbody sources are resistively heated by precision heating elements to provide uniform temperature distributions. The two-piece system is comprised of controller module and a separate enclosure for the emitter source with available aperture sizes from 4 x 4 inch (101 x 101 mm) up to 12 x 12 inch (305 x 305 mm), and temperature ranges from ambient +5.0° to 600.0 °C (+ 9 to 1112 °F). Emitter source temperature control is carried out by a precision digital PID controller, mounted in a 7" (180 mm) high 19" rack mount enclosure. An exceptionally stable RTD ensures long-term temperature stability of the system.
RS232C for remote control of set points and other critical parameters of the controller is standard. Optional RS485 output is available for remote operation.
