MILFORD, Mass., Sept. 9, 2012 — Process Sensors Corp. has added the two-piece model BBS1050 Compact blackbody calibration source to its line of precision blackbody radiation sources for verification and calibration of noncontact infrared thermometers, thermal imaging detectors/cameras, focal plane array detectors and heat flux meters. It is suitable for use with collimators and at automated calibration test stations.
The rugged device operates in the 50 to 1050 °C range. Portable and lightweight, it delivers a fast slew rate and high uniformity.
Its accuracy and stability, paired with a selection of eight standard apertures and emissivity of >0.99, render it versatile. Contained in separate housings, the calibration source and digital controller allow flexibility in positioning the instrument within an installation.
It features a large nonslip handle, measures 11.75 × 11.4 × 8 in. and weighs 17 lb, making it easy to maneuver and position. The digital self-tuning proportional integral derivative controller module measures 5.1 × 13.4 × 12 in. and weighs 9 lb.
