How Light Meters are Used and a Look at Several Models

=""

Konica Minolta light meters come in several styles and provide users with the ability to accurately measure light across many applications. An example of these applications include in laboratories, where engineers developing LEDs need to measure these devices' light properties.

Other applications where light meters are used include a variety of testing processes in government facilities and programs; the measurement of the efficiency of light sources and in efforts to manage and improve quality control operations. Light meters are also used museums and art preservation.

As experts in light-measuring technology and the design of light meters, we provide advanced tools that feature unique ergonomic designs. When technicians need to take these tools off-site, they can choose a portable model that runs on a 9-volt battery. But whatever model is used, we've built in to it technology that's easy to read and understand.

The four light meters we'll talk about here were all designed in compliance with the highest accuracy and quality standards in the industry for the measuring of illuminance and luminance. Because each application will have different requirements, we've built the most important and widely used features into the models below.

CL-200A Chroma Meter

This light meter model is used to measure three aspects of light sources:

  • Illuminance
  • Color temperature
  • Chromaticity

Light sources that can be measured with the CL-200A Chroma Meter include incandescent bulbs, fluorescent lamps and white LEDs.

CL-500A Illuminance Spectrophotometer

This was the first light meter we designed specifically to accurately measure and evaluate advanced lamps such as LED illumination and EL illumination. It can also take spectural and CRI measurements.

The unit is light and compact and provides highly accurate measuring results. It features a stand-alone configuration and an advanced sensor. Like with the CL-200A Chroma Meter, it is an ideal tool to measure illuminance and chromaticity and can be used both in a laboratory setting or in the field to measure the color temperature of virtually any light source.

LS-100 Luminance Meter

When the job involves measuring a wide range of luminance conditions with a 1 degree measuring area, the LS-100 Luminance Meter is the light meter of choice. It's compact, lightweight, handheld and portable, making it convenient for a variety of applications.

LS-110 Luminance Meter

The next light meter we'll look at here is the LS-110 Luminance Meter. Like the LS-100 Luminance Meter above, this instrument is also compact, lightweight, handheld and portable. The difference is, it is designed to measure luminance conditions.
