- Service & Support
The compact and hand-held Mikron® M316 calibration source weighs only 0.9 kg (2.0 lb). It covers a temperature range from ambient 5 to 300°C (572°F), with an accuracy of ±0.5% of reading ±1°C. It connects to the indicating controller via a flexible cable. Due to its small size, you can easily read the sensor in hard to reach locations without altering its position.
