Compact, General Purpose Blackbody Calibration Source, 100 to 1000°C
Advanced Energy’s Mikron M305 blackbody calibration source combines portability with a wide temperature range, high emissivity, and high accuracy.
- Easily moved when needed — weighs only 25 kg (55 lb)
- High accuracy ±0.2% of reading ±1°C
- High emissivity
- Manufactured and tested to meet rigid quality control standards
- Technical Specs
- Service & Support
The Mikron® M305 blackbody calibration source is a smart choice when portability is required and / or installation space is limited. Its spherical, metal cavity design yields an emissivity of 0.995 over the temperature range of 100 to 1000°C (212 to 1832°F) with an aperture of 25 mm (1 in). An integrally mounted PID controller adds to the versatility of this calibrator.
Custom designs and variations are available upon request.
