Ir Calibrator Rental

Ir Calibrator Rental

Infrared (black body) calibrator rentals

IR target calibrators are used to calibrate infrared (IR) thermometers. They consist of a uniform emissive black plane (the black body), which the UUT IR thermometer measures. Black body calibrators differ on the accuracy of the maintained temperature, the size of the emissive plane, the speed of changing stable temperatures, and the uniformity of the temperature maintained across the plane.


In general, bigger black bodies allow for faster and more accurate calibrations, as they allow calibrations from further away and there is less risk of the IR measurement cone seeping off the plane. On the other hand, the bigger the plane, the harder it is to maintain uniformity and the slower it is to change temperatures.


Transcat rents the Fluke Calibration (previously Hart Scientific) 4180 and 4181 Precision Infrared Calibrators.


What to consider when choosing which temperature calibrator to rent?
  • What is the unit being tested? Is it a standard thermometer or probe, or is it an infrared (IR) thermometer?
  • What is the range that needs to be measured?
  • What is the needed accuracy?
  • How many different temperature points will need to be measured and how fast do you wish the unit to switch from one to the next?
  • How stable and uniform does the calibrator need to maintain the reference temperature?
