IR-30K 4.2 Watts Emitters

Item Description

The IR-30K series is a coil-wound, supported IR Source, mounted on a TO-5 header. It is appropriate for use in laboratory or field instrumentation due to its long life and stable properties.

At steady state, the coiled filament operates at ~950°C when powered with 4.2 watts. The IR-30K uses Kanthal resistance wire for operation at higher temperature.

It can be pulsed up to 1 Hz with a larger power input. When operated at 1 hertz, 50% duty cycle with 3.5 volts, 7.1 watts, the output is a well-defined saw tooth with approximately 32% modulation depth. For higher modulation speeds, the pulsable sources should be considered.

Parabolic (collimation, P-05) and elliptical (focusing, E-05) reflectors are available for the IR-30K.

Also see the Universal Photon Source (UPS) Driver Board as an accessory to your emitter.
