How can I select the appropriate blackbody for my application?

Temperature range is the first parameter defining a blackbody: this can be obtained by considering the type of objects the IR sensor is supposed to look at. For example, if the sensor is looking at human bodies or vehicles or buildings, low temperature blackbodies should be considered.

The size of the emissive area is also an important parameter defining a blackbody.

Other parameters may be also critical depending on the application: regulation stability, emissivity, warm-up and cooling time, etc. Please contact EOI for any help.
