To calibrate infrared pyrometers and thermal imaging systems accurately, it is necessary to have a source of IR radiance that is controlled and predictable. PSC-BBS series of blackbody calibration sources provide a target of known emissivity, temperature and aperture size. These blackbodies can also provide calibration traceability to certified laboratories and national standards.
PSC-BBS 1150 and 1700 Mid to High Temperature Calibration Source
Process Sensors blackbody calibration source Model BBS 1700 features a high emissivity of +0.99 and a 1″ (25mm) aperture. The PSC-BBS 1700 delivers a temperature ranging from 300°C to 1700°C. To change the temperature, you adjust the set point on the precision digital PID controller to any temperature. But, within the specified temperature range. Upon reaching the user selectable set point temperature, the model BBS 1700 will stabilize and produce a temperature reading to within 0.5°C. This assures high accuracy calibration of non-contact infrared thermometers, thermal imaging camera systems, focal plane array detectors, etc. The PSC-BBS 1700 brochure explains more technical data as well.
