Micro-Hybrid Pulsable & High Power IR Source

Micro-Hybrid Electronic GmbH produces high performance IR sources as well as pyroelectric and thermopile infrared detectors (Micro-Hybrid IR Components Catalog). View the Micro-Hybrid video at the bottom of this page detailing their history and capabilities.

Micro-Hybrid has developed the JSIR450 series high power wide band IR sources and the JSIR 350 series pulsable wide band IR sources.

The JSIR450 series has high power in the IR-band up to 15μm. The JSIR450 series emits a circular pattern with uniform temperature distribution. The JSIR450 has a lifetime in excess of 20,000 hours.
 
The JSIR350 series has high intensity and ability to pulse at high frequencies up to 70Hz. It emits across a broadband from 1 to 20μm. The JSIR350 has a lifetime to 100,000 hours. The JSIR350 series uses the Intex MEMS IR source element with patented a-CNC films.

The JSIR350-4 is available in the Micro-Hybrid “Hermeseal” hermetic package for applications like:
  • Lower power with Krypton (Kr) backfill. You can operate at lower power and get the same optical output power - 430mW vs 650mW - 66%.
  • Harsh environments and where you want to isolate the “hot” IR source from explosive gases.
  • See below - JSIR350-4-AL-C-D3.7-A5-I. It is available with a reflector also.
     

Applications for the JSIR450 and JSIR350 series include infrared spectroscopy, gas detection systems, air quality and environment monitoring and medical gas monitoring.

NovaIR (formerly Intex) Pulsable IR Sources are now packaged by Micro-Hybrid
NovaIR (formerly Intex) has narrowed its focus and is now manufacturing their patented IR source membranes only. They are no longer packaging these components. Micro-Hybrid is using its assembly expertise to optimize the packaged performance of the unique NovaIR (formerly Intex) IR source membranes. Click here to see more details on the NovaIR (formerly Intex) sources.

EOC's EP, EF and EK Series IR Sources are a high quality replacement for:

  • The old SVF-series emitters
  • Ion Optics IR sources
  • ICX Photonics IR sources

The EF-853X Series infrared (IR) emitters is designed to be used as pulsable sources of blackbody radiation. The radiating element in the pulsable emitters is an ultra-thin metallic foil configured so that radiation from both sides of the heated foil is efficiently directed out of the package along the optic axis. The foil material has an emissivity of 0.88 and closely emulates a blackbody source in spectral distribution.

Windows for Explosive Gases and Harsh Environments
Micro-Hybrid offers as an option detectors with windows for applications with explosive gasses or harsh environments.

To avoid damaging the IR sources during soldering and cleaning, consider using sockets.
