The IR-500 Black Body Calibrator is a stable heat source for checking the calibration of infrared digital thermometers that require regular temperature calibration checks or validation. The unit features an easy to read LED display, and controls the black body surface temperature over the range of 50 to 500 °C. It reaches an upper temperature of 500 °C in about 40 minutes.
Simply set the verification temperature on the digital display of the IR-500 Calibrator, allow time to stabilise and then point your infrared thermometer at the Ø58 mm black body. Compare the temperature readings on the IR-500 Calibrator display and the infrared thermometer under test, and the difference isthe error. The isothermal Ø58 mm black body target is manufactured to an emissivity of approximately 0.95, which is ideal for most industrial infrared thermometers.
For increased accuracy checks, use a Reference thermometer, insert the fixed Ø3.3 mm precision PT100 probe into the pre drilled calibration well.
