IR-564/301 Blackbody System

The IR-564 extends the temperature range of the IR-563 to 1200 º C by changing cavity materials to Silicon Carbide and high purity Alumina ceramics, otherwise the two units are virtually identical.

The 20º tapered - recessed - cone, surface emissivity, and cavity apsect ratio combine to provide blackbody radiation by multiple reflection, absorption and re-emission of it's thermal energy. The thermal energy of the cavity is provided by a ceramic-sealed heater coil that uniformly heats the cavity cylinder to temperatures from 50 º C to 1200º C. The IR-564 system has a full, one-year warranty.
