Mikron M345X6-LC Blackbodies

Not for New Designs

Liquid-Cooled, Low Temperature Blackbody Calibration Source with Large Surface Area, -40 to 100°C

The Mikron® M345X6-LC blackbody source is liquid-cooled and heated by precision thermoelectric modules (Peltier method). It is available in absolute or differential configurations. M345X6-LC calibration sources satisfy the exacting parameters of infrared focal plane array detectors, thermal imaging, and forward-looking infrared systems testing in static and moving scene applications. They combine fast slew rates, high emissivity, and unchallenged stability and uniformity.


  • High emissivity with thermometric calibration
  • Uniform temperature distribution with precision heating elements
  • Manufactured and tested to meet rigid quality control standards
  • Furnished with a certificate of calibration traceable to NIST
  • RS232 serial communication


  • Calibrate and verify the output signals of pyrometers, thermal imagers, etc.
  • Obtain lower temperature calibrations using liquid cooling
  • Utilize large aperture sizes
  • Control emitter source temperature with a precision digital PID controller
  • Satisfy the exacting parameters of infrared focal plane array detectors, thermal imaging and forward looking infrared systems testing
