IR-2100/2101/301 Blackbody System

Infrared Systems Development introduces a NEW Low-Cost Thermo-Electrically cooled / Heated blackbody source. The 0.375" Thick solid Copper Emitter plate provides superior uniformity and energy emission. Our Proprietary High Emissivity Black Coating provides >0.95 uniform Emissivity from 0.8 to 30 um. A Type "T" Thermocouple is embedded in the emitter plate to allow independant monitoring and calibration of the surface temperature. The IR-2100 series offers stablility and uniformity comparable to competetive systems costing more than $20,000 for a fraction of thier costs, providing the best cost to performance ratio.

  • 2.5” x 2.5” (2" x 2" available) Extended Area Blackbody Systems
  • System includes IR-301 Temperature Controller
  • Emissivity: 0.96 +/- 0.02
  • Resolution: 0.1°C
  • The active area temperature range will be reduced depending on ambient temperature conditions. For normal 25ºC ambient, the IR-2100 range is -5ºC to 130ºC, the IR-2101 is -25ºC to 75ºC.°C
