IR-2106/301 Blackbody System

Infrared Systems Development introduces a NEW Low-Cost 6” x 6” Thermo-Electrically cooled / Heated blackbody source with a temperature range of 5ºC to 150ºC. The 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 independent monitoring and calibration of the surface temperature. The IR-2106 offers maximum reliability, stability and uniformity comparable to those of competitive systems, but at less than half the cost, providing the best cost to performance ratio.
