4180 Series Precision Infrared Calibrator

March 12, 2008
Hart Scientific, a division of Fluke Corporation and a world leader in temperature calibration products and services, today announced the 4180 Series Precision Infrared Calibrators.  The two new models, 4180 and 4181, utilize the same size targets used and recommended by thermometer manufacturers and special design technology that assists in productively performing high-quality infrared thermometer calibrations without requiring a background in physics.The 4180 calibrator has a temperature range of –15 °C to 120 °C, with radiometric (non-contact infrared) display accuracy as good as ± 0.40 °C; and the 4181 calibrator measures from 35 °C to 500 °C, with radiometric display accuracy also as good as ±0.35 °C.The 4180 series calibrators have features that allow users to address quality issues commonly not covered by other calibrators in the same class, including emissivity and size of source effect.  Additional features including target stability, target uniformity, six-inch target diameter, traceable radiometric calibration, and compensation for the emissivity settings of the radiation thermometer being tested overcome some of the other most common limitations.  In addition, sample calibration procedures for Fluke thermometers are built into the instrument to get users up and running with a minimum of training. • Temperature range - –15 °C to 120 °C • Size (HxWxD) - 356 mm x 241 mm x 216 mm (14 in x 9.5 in x 8.5 in) • Weight - 9.1 kg (20 lb)
