The Mikron® M330 blackbody calibration source features a digital indicating temperature controller that you can set to any temperature between 300 to 1700°C. The temperature controller uses the industry standard PID algorithms to control the emitter temperature within ±0.5°C.

A precision thermocouple controls the blackbody cavity to provide high accuracy and repeatability. And the M330 blackbody uses a resistive heater to enhance the product lifecycle. Added safety features include an independent over-temperature power cutout system and an internal fan to keep the cabinet surfaces at a safe, comfortable temperature.
