The spot luminance meters LS-100 is categorized in
the upper range of the DIN quality class B, are among the best hand
meters on the market. The SLR (single lens reflex) optical system
allows precise targeting and ensures that the viewfinder shows the
exact area to be measured, even at very short distances. This makes
even precise focussing very easy. In addition to the measurement
field and the measurement environment, the viewfinder also shows
the measured luminance value. The pistol grip makes handling of the
unit very secure. We have given special attention to minimize flare
and to give precise V(λ) correlation (CIE relative photopic
luminosity curve). With the help of a close-up lens, areas as small
as 0.4mm diameter can be measured.
Areas of application
Light sources of all types can be measured with the
LS, for example signal, traffic lights, airport lighting, lamps,
LED's, picture tubes, etc., just about anything that emits light.
Now you can, for example, guarantee minimum brightness, exchange
lamps that are too dark early enough, build quality assurance into
the production of lamps, or check indirectly illuminated objects
like movie screens.
- SLR (single-lens-reflex) optical system
The LS-100's single-lens-reflex design ensures that there will be
no deviation between the actual measurement area and the area
indicated in the viewfinder. Eliminating the effect of illumination
outside the measurement range, this flareless optical system
ensures accurate measurement of only the target area.
- Spot measurement for small target areas
With acceptance angles of 1° and 1/3° respectively, the LS-100 and
LS-110 are ideal for measuring the luminance of small specimens.
Furthermore, a close-up lens (sold separately) can be used to
achieve a 1.3-mm measurement diameter for the LS-100 and a 0.4-mm
measurement diameter for the LS-110.
- User calibration and color-correction functions for wide
With a user calibration function allowing recalibration to any
standard luminance that you select and a color-correction input
function for correction of indication differences for specific
light sources, multiple luminance meters can be used without error
for extremely detailed luminance control.
- Luminance ratio and peak value measurement
Based on the particular application, measurement values can be set
to instantaneous luminance, peak luminance, and luminance
- Two-way RS-232C communication
Featuring an RS-232C interface as standard, this luminance meter
can connect with a PC to send measurement data and receive control

(Power can also be supplied by the DP-10 Data Printer.)
