PCE-IC1 temperature calibrator infrared calibrator up to 350ºC for the verification of infrared thermometers
The PCE-IC1 temperature calibrator is an easy to use infrared calibration system for calibrating infrared thermometers in laboratories or in situ. The temperature calibrator's thermal block, or black body, is situated at the front of the device and has a diameter of 58mm, which serves as the source of radiation for calibrating pyrometers. This temperature calibrator also allows for the use of the thermal block in adverse conditions, including infrared thermometers that do not have any direct relation to their defined measurement point. The temperature calibrator's control unit is easy to use and has a display that shows the nominal value and real value of the temperature being verified. An integrated cooling unit allows for temperatures to be raised or lowered quickly. This temperature calibrator is ideal for verifying and calibrating infrared thermometers. It ensures the highest accuracy and repeatability of infrared thermometers and eliminates erroneous measurements in advance. If you wish to see other calibrators, click here.

Examples of use
It is also possible to calibrate a thermometer with temperature probes with this calibrator as you can see in the upper image.
Additionally, as you can observe in the image, you can also calibrate a thermometer that uses temperature probes with this calibrator.
There are other calibrator types to calibrate voltage,pulses, current, resistance and frequency signals. However, there are other calibrators without these properties. Depending on your own requirements, you may need diverse devices or calibrator models. If you need to verify some or all the properties previously mentioned, you should buy a multifunction calibrator. This multifunction calibrator will allow you to measure some different values, since it is generally able to display these values simultaneously. High quality calibrators are the ideal instrument to measure emission of voltage, current, resistance, pulses, frequency signals as well as for the simulation and measurement of resistance thermometer and thermo-elements. This last characteristic is also described in the device as "TC measurement and simulation". The resistance thermometer is called RTD. Apart form the multifunction calibrator, there are other calibrator types such as: pressure calibrators, sound calibrators, process and block calibrators. This calibrator is the most common type.

Optional accessories - ISO calibration certificate For companies that wish to incorporate the calibrator into their set of internal test equipment or for annual recalibrations. The ISO certification includes a laboratory calibration with a test certificate with all the measurement values.
ISO calibration and certification An ISO calibration certificate can be acquired for this contact temperature calibrator. It includes a control document containing the company contact details consisting of a laboratory calibration and a certification to meet ISO standards. This means that the temperature calibrator meets the minimum requirements of the national body of measurement and that it can be included in your internal set of measuring instruments. Further information:
Calibration: The control of measurement magnitudes the temperature calibrator without intervention in the measurement system, or the determination of the systematic display deviation in relation to the real value of the measuring magnitude.
Calibration document or certificate: Document with the technical properties of the device according to the national organization of measurement.
Calibration interval: To perform correct measurements, devices must be calibrated at regular intervals. This period of time is called calibration interval. It's difficult to determine this period with accuracy but you should consider the following factors:
- Performance of the temperature calibrator
- Frequencyof use of the temperature calibrator
- Operatingconditions of the temperature calibrator
- Determining factors of the quality control systems used by companies
This means that it is up to the user to check and control the interval between calibrations. We recommend that this interval between calibrations should be between 1 and 3 years. We can also offer our expert advice to solve any questionss relating to the process of establishing a calibration interval.
