HGH Infrared Systems has announced three releases to its blackbody product line. Releases include new dual blackbody, Labview drivers and a smartphone application to remotely control the blackbodies.

The company has been making infrared test equipment for more than 30 years. Its latest innovation is the TwiN1000 – a double extended area blackbody that the company says is an absolute infrared reference source.

The device consists of a head with two independently regulated emissive surfaces, controlled via a single electronic unit. Compact and cost-effective, TwiN1000 is the ideal blackbody for applications which require calibration temperatures to jump from one to another within a second.

HGH has also developed an eBlackbody application and a LabView driver. eBlackBody is a smartphone application acting as a remote control for HGH’s blackbodies. With a swipe of a finger on a smartphone or tablet, all blackbodies parameters can be displayed and modified. With their Labview driver, HGH’s blackbodies can be easily integrated into complex multi-devices test benches.

'For years now, we have had the privilege of developing close relationships with faithful customers,' said Catherine Barrat, test and measurement product manager. 'By analysing their requirements, we have started several development projects. These three new releases are the first exciting new innovations we will bring this year to fully meet their needs.'
