Mikron M315X Blackbodies


Two-Piece Medium Temperature Blackbody Calibration Source, Ambient +5 to 400°C

The Mikron® M315X series blackbody calibration sources satisfy exacting requirments of infrared focal plane array detectors, thermal imaging cameras, and other imaging systems. The M315X series calibration 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. Two connecting cables allow 3.6 m (12 ft) of separation between the blackbody source and the controller.
