- Service & Support
The Mikron® M345X6-LC blackbody source is liquid-cooled and heated by precision thermoelectric modules (Peltier method). It is available in absolute or differential configurations.
M345X6-LC calibration sources satisfy the exacting parameters of infrared focal plane array detectors, thermal imaging, and forward-looking infrared (FLIR) systems testing in static and moving scene applications. They combine fast slew rates, high emissivity, and unchallenged stability and uniformity.
