Results You Can Trust

Measure any light source and get the results you need. Evaluate products meet spec before you buy, develop products faster, or ensure your products are manufactured properly. The Spectis 1.0 Touch can do it all.

Get the Latest Metrics

Keep up on the latest industry requirements and metrics with our lifetime upgrades. From standard quantities like spectrum, lux and CCT to new requirements like TM-30, PAR/PPFD and EML.

Scaleable, All In One Instrument

The Spectis 1.0 Touch spectral meter is unlike any other handheld on the market. With a range of interchangeable accessories the Spectis can grow with your business from standard illuminance (lux / fcd) measurement to luminous flux (lumen), and luminance measurement.

More Than Just a Handheld

Accessories for a range of applications

Spectral LED Tester

Spectral LED Tester

Simple way to turn your illuminance spectrometer into the single LED tester to measure luminous flux and color CRI and TM30 rendering properties of LEDs. Install the GL OPTI SPHERE 48 which mounts directly on the device and measure. This can be used as portable set but also can be installed in the lab or production for quick and precise LED testing.

Display and OLED testing

Display and OLED testing

Any flat light emitting surface can be measured with Spectis 1.0 Touch when you use optional Opti Probe 1.0 for luminance and radiance. This accessory connects to the spectrometer with fiber optic connection and can be installed on a tripod at a distance from the test device or put directly on the LED or OLED surface to measure cd/m2, SPD and radiance.

Under water LED light testing

Under water LED light testing

If you are developing or distributing Aquarium LED lighting you can connect our LED light meter with optional water tight probe design for evaluation of lighting installations dedicated to submarine, aquarium or other underwater technical lighting.

Effective Irradiance Measurements

Effective Irradiance Metrics

Horticulture or Agriculture lighting applications you can use our spectral light and PAR meter to evaluate any effective irradiance values. Onboard firmware can calculate PAR, PPFD and other critical parameters of modern specialized LED lighting installations. Connect to our Spectrosoft tool for advanced analysis options.

Spectis Touch Usage

Reliable and Flexible

The GL SPECTIS 1.0 Touch was designed based on the experience gained from our original non-touch screen model, the Spectis 1.0. Our goal was to create a spectral LED light meter for customers who wanted to have a simple solution without any sacrifice in optical performance and dependability.
This battery-operated standalone device is ideal for different light measurement applications – from the laboratory to field testing. Through extensive engineering in the design and calibration procedures, this device provides the highest accuracy of any handheld spectral light measurement device. We understand that light measurement is not an easy task, but thanks to the Spectis 1.0 Touch, you no longer need to be an expert to make professional LED lamps evaluation.

Light Quality Under Control

This light measurement instrument is designed for those who value quality and high technology solutions. It includes many technical features and superior components offering a unique combination of laboratory accuracy and ease-of-use. It is a must have for any lighting professional looking to build its competitive advantage by improving the quality of LED lamps, modules and luminaires.

What would you like to measure?

The standard light spectrometer covers the visual range measurements of LED, OLED, CFL, discharge lamps and other light sources.
Need to measure outside the visual range? Check our VIS NIR model. Use any of our additional accessories and software options for advanced applications.

Spectis Touch Features

Self Contained Handheld Spectrometer

The Spectis 1.0 Touch spectral light meter comes standard with Class measuring head as a standard accessory for proper measurement of illuminance (lux). The instrument does not require a computer connection to carry out the measurements and the relevant data is immediately displayed on the color touch screen.

Automatic Accessory Detection

This handheld spectral light meter uses a propriatary mechanism to detect which optical probe has been attached and automatically applies the correct calibration file for that accessory. This enables the user to confidently avoid measuring errors when changing accessory interfaces. The calibration meets the requirements of leading standards institutes and is confirmed with a manufacturer’s certification.

Dark current compensation

The Spectis 1.0 Touch spectral light meter is ready to provide very accurate measurements for almost any lighting condition. A temperature sensor installed on the electronic board monitors changes in temperature and automatically compensates for any change in the system noise, providing excellent measurement stability.

Trigger Socket

For automated or production applications, you can use the trigger socket to synchronize spectroradiometer with external systems. For example, the signal from the socket can trigger the flash of a tested lamp during measurements.

Photometric and Radiometric calibration

Each system is delivered with an absolute spectral calibration with traceablility to National Labs and using industry best practices. Obtain absolute values such as Lux, Candela and Lumen together with radiometric values depending on the measurement accessory installed.

Spectis Touch Measurement

Our preconfigured, individually calibrated spectral light meters deliver fast and precise results for nearly any practical light measurement application. Measure in seconds and review the results directly on the handheld display or dig deeper with the included software. Using the Spectis Touch, you can measure any or all of the following optical quantities:

  • Lux – irradiance
  • Lumen – luminous flux
  • CRI – color rendering index according to the CIE
  • CCT – the color temperature according to standard CIE
  • Color – the chromatic coordinates of the CIE 1931 and CIE 1964
  • Fidelity and Gamut – method for evaluating light source color rendition according to TM-30 IES standard
  • PAR/PPFD – handheld PAR meter displays photosynthetic active radiation measurements for horticulture
  • EML – biological effects of light on humans in equivalent melanopic lux
  • mWatt – radiation energy
  • + many more!

Whatever your application, our precise SPECTIS 1.0 GL Touch is ideal.
