Introducing the IR emitters from Helioworks

LASER COMPONENTS has a long partnership with Helioworks, a world leading manufacturer of infra-red emitters. Helioworks manufactures a unique range of steady state black body emitters in industry standard TO packages. Using Kanthal (FeCrAl alloy) filaments with an emissivity of 0.7 and proprietary assembly techniques, these emitters operate at 900ºC in steady state mode consuming 2.4 Watts at 1.4 Volts maximum and 1.75 Amps into 0.8 Ohms.

These emitters are the source of choice to provide power beyond 4.5 microns. Optional gold coated parabolic reflectors are available and a choice of calcium fluoride, sapphire or zinc selenide windows as standard.

They supply the units with no window or with a specific IR material for custom applications. Also available are pulsable IR emitters using NiCr or tungsten filaments offering large temperature modulation and desirable signal to noise ratio. All the emitters that we supply provide robust sources for spectroscopic applications.
