Gigahertz-Optik Upgrades LED Analysis Meter

The meter now provides fourteen different light, colour and spectral measurement quantities to fully characterise any type light source including LEDs in the lab or field
Gigahertz-Optik’s BTS256-E Light-Colour-Spectral Meter has been upgraded.

It now includes scotopic illuminance measurement, scotopic to photopic illuminance ratio and EVE (Equivalent Visual Efficiency) Factor per IES TM-24-13 analysis.

BTS256-ELED Meter

The meter now provides fourteen different light, colour and spectral measurement quantities to fully qualify solid state lighting and any other type light source.

The BTS256-E has its own on-board back-lit display for stand-alone use or it can be used with supplied software under complete PC control. What's more, for system integration SDK software development kits are available for National Instruments LabView, Microsoft .NET, C/C++. The software development kits make it easy for self-progammers to embed the BTS256-E Light-Colour-Spectral Meter within their own software.

Unique features like time delayed measurement, illuminance distribution mapping, fast datalogger mode and user display set-up allow the meter to be configured for specific measurement tasks.

This innovative yet affordable new lightmeter is ideal for lighting manufacturers just starting up in SSL and LED replacement lamps as a quality control production tool and as a lab level instrument for design work. Architectural, display, transportation, entertainment and other lighting designers and engineers, field service personnel, health and safety officers will find it a highly useable field service meter.

Gigahertz-Optik is a manufacturer of innovative UV-VIS-NIR optical radiation measurement instrumentation for specification critical industrial, medical and research applications.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
