Practical Solutions To Real Application Problems

Here's The Problem:
Your company manufactures a wide range of solid state lighting for various applications. You need to convince your customers that retrofitting their traditional site lighting with your new LED based lighting is a better way to go. But when comparing the light sources your filter based luxmeter is not doing a good job providing the light intensity and color temperature data you need to prove your claims. Also different customers are requesting different measurement quantities based on the lighting application, whether display, general, horticultural or other.

Here Are The Requirements:

  • Fast accurate color, illuminance and color temperature information
  • Able to measure all of the different measurands present in various lighting apps
  • PAR measurement capability for horticultural applications
  • TM 30-15 and CRI measurement capability for display lighting
  • Multiple meters are required for sales reps and installation & service techs, requiring a cost effective solution

Here's The Solution:
Gigahertz-Optik's handy MSC15 spectral light meter. It's light & color measurement made simple.
