Single LED Measurement

Advanced handheld solution for full optical characterization of LEDs

LED Lumen Measurement

Precise and Portable LED Flux Measurement Solution

Electric current, electronic drivers and terminal element may negatively affect lighting properties of LEDs and are a primary reason why measuring the performance of single LEDs may be necessary once they are installed on PCB. Everyday electronic developers involved in the LED lighting struggle with optimization of the LED output, modules, drivers, selecting optics etc.

Instead of selecting the most suitable LEDs for development projects based only on the features of a datasheet, more designers are moving towards spectrometer based systems that enable them to quickly and easily verify performance, check if samples are meeting specification and quickly confirm binning. With the more flexible systems, the total light output of LEDs can also be measured simply by placing a sphere on top of each LED.

Compact and Portable

Being the size of a mobile phone, this single LED measurement system is small enough to be carried in a pocket so you can bring it to meetings with your suppliers or customers. Also adapts nicely to production lines or QC test labs.

Easily Operated

Truly a point and click optical measurement solution. Obtain high-quality data with little or no optical test experience. Connect this plug ’n’ play set to a computer for more advanced reporting and analysis.

Convenient

The system detects installed accessories automatically and is ready to perform measurements. Individual instrument calibration comes as a standard so you can be absolutely sure that the produced results are correct.

Who is our single LED measurement solution for?

This tool is ideal for production environment, field work, as well as laboratories can be used for various applications:

  • Quality control of incoming LEDs delivered by various suppliers
  • LED Binning
  • Measurement of fiber optic sources like endoscopes and other types
  • Calibration of lighting fixtures made of many LEDs

R&D departments, application engineers and developers for:

  • Checking the influence of dimming
  • Testing diffusers or optics installed on LEDs
  • Monitoring changes of spectra, color or luminous flux

What Can You Measure?

Incoming Inspection MetricsWhen purchasing specific groups of LEDs from your supplier you can quickly check if they met your expectation regarding the luminous flux [lm] color coordinates [x,y] or color temperature CCT [K]. Using the Opti Sphere 48 integrating sphere with a spectroradiometer of your choice you may organize and simplify incoming quality control.

Binning Control

Our Spectrosoft Pro software features a Binning Editor Tool which allows for quick verification that the delivery is matching the selected bin (color and lumen groups). It includes most popular binning systems like ANSI and OSRAM as well as other common binning options. The software option allows for customization of binning groups which may be set by your internal quality system or your specific design requirements.

Development Critical Metrics

During the development of new LED modules and fixtures you can immediately check the influence of LED drivers, new PCB boards and other components which influence lighting properties of your products. Measuring LEDs before installing them on PCB helps to improve your products and optimizes prototyping.

Other standard measurement quantities:

  • 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/PPF – photosynthetic active radiation measurements for horticulture
  • mWatt – radiation energy
  • + many more!
