The world’s first and most powerful handheld spectral light meter
Light Spectrometer for immediate evaluation of illuminance, color and flicker metrics in one device
The Spectis 1.0 Touch handheld light meter offers unmatched performance and flexibility. With an interchangeable detector, the system can be used for wide range of applications and measurement geometries. Use in the field, the lab or both!
This intuitively-operated instrument is ideal for lamp and luminaire manufacturers, installers and lighting auditors who want to control and improve the quality of LED lighting products. From incoming component testing, through the research and development up to the final product testing and verification.
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.
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.
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 / fc) measurement to luminous flux (lumen), and luminance measurement.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 proprietary 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.
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 traceability 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.
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:

* Dynamic range is spectrum related and should be calculated separately for any light source. Estimated dynamic range for typical 4000 K white LED.
Range estimated for optical system made to default specification. Alterations of that are often possible. Please consult technical support if you are looking for specific parameters.
** Spectral range of the sensor. Actual spectral range of system may be reduced due to limitations of used optical accessory.
*** Absolute measurement uncertainty immediately after calibration. The expanded uncertainty corresponds to a coverage probability of 95 % and the coverage factor k = 2.
Parameters valid in laboratory conditions 25deg C, relative humidity 45%.
**** Applies only within the spectral range of the given model.
***** In moderate use – continuous measurements and WiFi significantly increase energy consumption.
