Advanced handheld solution for full optical characterization of LEDs
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.
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.
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.
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.
This tool is ideal for production environment, field work, as well as laboratories can be used for various applications:
R&D departments, application engineers and developers for:
Incoming Inspection Metrics
When 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.
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.
