  • Manufactured and tested to meet rigid quality control standards
  • RS232 (standard) or RS485 (option) serial communication output

Details

Designed to satisfy the exacting parameters of Infrared focal plane array Detectors, Thermal Imaging, and FLIR systems testing in projection scene and field application, the M315X Series blackbody calibration sources combine, high emissivity, and unchallenged stability and uniformity. Available aperture sizes ranges from 4 x 4 inch (101 x 101mm) up to 12 x 12 inch (305 x 305mm), and temperature ranges from ambient +5.0° to 400.0 °C.

The M315X Series Blackbody 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.

Emitter source temperature control is carried out by a conventional, standard 19 inch rack mounting, precision digital PID controller. RS 232 is standard. RS485 is available as an option.  A standard connecting cable allows 12' (3.6m) of separation between source and controller. 

Typical Calibration Applications

  • thermal imaging systems,
  • aerial mapping / surveillance equipment
  • spectrophotometers
