DMS 505 Goniometer

DMS 505 Goniometer

The DMS 505 is based on a 6-axis goniometer with 3 motorized axes. The measurement system permits angle-dependent analysis of all electro-optical characteristics of displays, including luminance, contrast, and color properties of displays at different viewing angles and variable electrical driving. The DMS 505 is ideal for determining the characteristics of displays for mobile applications (smartphone, tablet PC) with the comprehensive range of accessories including illumination devices and temperature-control chambers.
