Measurement Solutions for Lighting Manufacturer

Accurate and Traceable Solutions for the Testing, Inspection and Production of Lighting and Luminaires

Measure Lighting Products


Solutions for the Characterisation of Modern Lighting Technology Including LEDs and Traditional Sources in All Forms

Modern lighting technologies play a expanded role in our environment, with LED lighting and other new technologies allowing for new configurations, reduced energy consumption, improved quality and greatly enhanced decorative flexibility. This expanded choice and versatility requires updated measurement equipment and control of parameters in order to create consistent and quality lighting products.

Measurement systems are available so that manufacturers can characterise:
  • Lux or fcd values: an accurate and traceable measurement system allows producers and development teams to balance power consumption, efficiency, and lifespan of LEDs.
  • Colour temperature and chromaticity: to ensure harmony and consistency in white lighting and ensure the visual effect of any decorative lighting is consistent and delivers the desired experience.
  • Luminous Flux, Intensity and intensity distribution: to validate performance or suitability to particular applications.
  • Blue light hazard: measurement to characterise photobiological safety.
LEDs and luminaires can be measured throughout development, production and assembly, Konica Minolta Sensing and Konica Minolta group companies can supply an instrument that is both easy to use and can be maintained and calibrated to provide traceable data.
  • Measurement of lux/fcd
  • Measurement of Luminance for characterising reflections from surfaces or of the visual colour of lit surfaces.
  • Measurement of colour temperature ensuring that white bulbs are consistent with others 
  • Measurement of chromaticity to ensure that decorative lighting is consistent and has the desired hue
  • Measurement of spectral power distribution to validate colour rendering, scotopic and photopic lumens in outdoor or road lighting
Konica Minolta Sensing supply a range of systems to meet these measurement requirements, from simple illuminance meters for traceable measurement of lux, luminance meters for luminance & colour and  spectroradiometers for characterisation of luminance and spectral power distribution. Further systems for QC of LED arrays, LED strips, MICRO LEDs or assemblies and development labs are available from group companies Instrument Systems GmbH and Radiant Vision Systems.

The renowned optical technology of Konica Minolta measurement instruments is supported by a global network of experienced sales and support in order to maintain ongoing traceability and accuracy of your measurement solution over its lifetime.

Benefits

  • Reduce costs and save time communicating with supply partners by eliminating subjectivity in specification and QC with accurate and traceable data
  • Speed up validation testing of assembled luminaires with fast and automated identification of out of specification LEDs
  • Accurately benchmark LEDs at goods-in, competitor products or NPD with consistent and traceable data
