How would I make a simple Infrared Heater?
I am planning on build ing IR Heater. would a 6 millimeter IR emmiter with 960 millimeter wavelength work to produce heat?
If your not aware with IR heaters then here is a short explanation:
A normal heater such as a gas heater heats up the surrounding air, but a IR heater uses infrared waves to heat up surfaces of objects. So instead of heating surrounding air the IR waves heat up surfaces of objects. Also IR waves penetrate the epidermise (top layer of skin).
Here is a diagram of what the circuit looks like.
The question is would this circuit work?
Also are 6millimeter IR emmiter with 960 millimeter wavelength work?
