Overview

The Mikron® M315X series blackbody calibration sources satisfy the exacting parameters of infrared focal plane array detectors, thermal imaging, and FLIR systems testing in projection scene and field applications. 

The M315X series calibration sources are resistively heated by precision heating elements to provide uniform temperature distributions. The two-piece system is comprised of controller module and a separate enclosure for the emitter source. Two connecting cables allow 3.6 m (12 ft) of separation between the blackbody source and the controller.

Benefits

  • Satisfy the exacting parameters of infrared focal plane array detectors, thermal imaging, and FLIR systems testing in projection scene and field application
  • Achieve high accuracy and resolution
  • Ensure uniform temperature distributions
  • Control the emitter source temperature with a precision digital PID controller
  • Guarantee the quality of your calibration

Features

  • Excellent general purpose calibration
  • Large aperture sizes
  • Resistively heated by precision heating elements
  • RS232 (standard) or RS485 (option) serial communication output
  • High emissivity and uniformity
  • Measurement Specifications
