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.


  • Ensure fast heat-up times and high-temperature stability
  • Gain maximum portability and flexibility
  • Achieve high accuracy and resolution
  • Guarantee fast heat-up times
  • Easily carry


  • High effective emissivity 1.00 at 8 to 14 µm
  • Large aperture (2.25 in diameter)
  • Excellent stability ±0.25°C
  • Fast slew rate (heat-up time)
  • Furnished with a certificate of calibration traceable to NIST
  • Measurement Specifications
