Mikron M390S

Two-Piece Calibration Source with Very Quick Heat-Up Time, 600 to 3000°C

Advanced Energy’s Mikron M390S ultra-high temperature blackbody calibrator easily achieves high emissivity targets and stabilizes at your required temperature within a few minutes of turn-on.

  • Exceptional accuracy at high temperatures
  • ± 0.25% of reading ± 1°C
  • High 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® M390S ultra-fast high temperature blackbody calibrator is identical to the M390 in capabilities. But it is a two-part blackbody comprised of a controller section and an emitter section.

Its cavity is a graphite tube target and is available with 25 mm (1 in) aperture that showcases an effective emissivity of 1.0 from 0.65 to 1.8 µm. Target temperature is sensed by a rapid response infrared thermometer and a PID controller regulates the target temperature precisely to your desired value. The controller is mounted on the calibration source and remote set point programming is available via an RS232 communication port.


  • Quickly stabilize at your required temperature
  • Achieve high accuracy and repeatability
  • Rapidly warm up and cool down — only five 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
