Mikron M300

Large, High Emissivity Blackbody Calibration Source, 200 to 1150°C

Advanced Energy’s Mikron M300 is a high standard, precision blackbody calibration source. It features a uniformly heated spherical cavity that achieves a near ideal emissivity of 0.998 or better.

  • Superior accuracy within ±0.25% of reading ±1°C
  • Large 51 mm aperture diameter
  • High effective emissivity 1.0 at 0.7 to 1.8 µm, 0.998 typical at other wavelengths
  • Rugged housing

The Mikron® M300 blackbody calibration source accurately delivers any temperature between 200 to 1150°C (392 to 2102°F). A convenient micro-processor-based, digital PID controller maintains your select temperature to within 1°C for accurate calibration. The accuracy of the M300 is backed by tests, burn-in times, and radiometric calibrations. 


  • Accurately deliver any temperature between 200 to 1150°C (392 to 2102°F)
  • Meet rigid quality control standards
  • Rely on fast heat-up times and high temperature stability
  • Achieves a near ideal emissivity of 0.998 or better
  • Achieve superior accuracy within ±0.25% of reading ±1°C


  • Manufactured and tested to meet rigid quality control standards
  • Furnished with certificate of calibration traceable to NIST
  • RS232 (standard) or RS485 (optional) serial communications port
  • Convenient micro-processor-based, digital PID controller
  • Rugged housing designed for fixed installation in laboratory or test department
