Mikron M390

Ultra-fast Blackbody Calibration Sources, 300 to 3000°C

Advanced Energy’s M390 ultra-fast high temperature blackbody calibrator can produce very high temperatures and meet high emissivity targets. It can quickly stabilize within a few minutes.

  • Exceptional accuracy at high temperatures
  • ±0.25% of reading ±1°C
  • Effective emissivity of 1.0 between 0.65 to 1.8 µm
  • Rapid warm-up/cool-down time — only five minutes from ambient to 2300°C

The Mikron® M390 blackbody calibrator quickly produces high temperature, high emissivity targets, and stabilizes at your required temperature in minutes.

The cavity is a graphite tube target with a 25 mm (1 in) diameter and has an effective emissivity of 1.0 from 0.65 to 1.8 µm. Target temperature is sensed by a rapid response infrared thermometer and the PID controller to regulates the target temperature to your desired value.

The controller is mounted on the calibration source and remote set point programming is available via the standard RS232 communication port.


  • Quickly stabilize at your required temperature
  • Achieve high accuracy and repeatability
  • Rapidly warm up and cool down—only 5 minutes from ambient to 2300°C
  • Easily access all safety features
  • Meet rigid quality control standards


  • PID controller regulates target temperature precisely to desired value
  • Remote calibration set point control via RS232
  • ±0.25% of reading ±1°C
  • High effective emissivity of 1.0 between 0.65 to 1.8 µm
  • Furnished with certification of calibration traceable to NIST
