Fast. Focused. Controlled.

The model 5306 StripIR® infrared heater is a lamp and polished aluminum reflector heating system that provides even heat distribution across a 1.5" wide strip. The model 5306 heater uses a T-3 halogen lamp backed by an aluminum reflector to provide heat and offer users the benefits of a high-density heating solution.

Features and benefits

  • The lamp reaches 90% of full operating temperature within 3 seconds of a cold start.
  • The radiant energy dissipates to 10% within five seconds after the power is disconnected.
  • Localized heat is focused only on the desired area without heating the rest of the product.
  • Non-contact heat source does not come in contact with product being heated.
  • The infrared energy emitted can be adjusted to match various application requirements.
  • Repeatable results can be achieved for consistent process outputs.
  • The power controller is included as part of the package.
  • An 8-foot power cord is included to connect the heater module to the power controller.
  • There are four 10-32 threaded ½-inch mounting screws located on the top surface of the end castings (see dimensional drawing on data sheet for locations).  

A variety of heated lengths are available to accommodate different heating requirements. Instant on/off capability makes it ideal for applications such as curing, drying and precise heating.

Heater module

The heater module has a highly polished surface that focuses the infrared energy into a 1.5-inch-wide strip. It uses water cooling to keep the reflector at a cool operating temperature. Safe electrical connections are made in the heaters and castings.

System controllers

The StripIR 5306 heater comes equipped with a power controller to precisely regulate the voltage being applied to the heater. The output of the heating element is repeatable and is dependent on the voltage supplied to it. The power controllers are designed as part of this system to optimize the heater performance.


A variety of high-intensity, short-wave, T-3 halogen lamps are available for the different lengths of the Model 5306. The tungsten emitter in the lamps has an operating temperature of up to 4000°F with a spectral energy peak wavelength of 1.15 microns. The Model 5306 heater will heat a strip that is 1.5 inches wide, and is available for heated lengths from 2 to 38 inches. Heated length should be 20% larger than work-piece.
