The high accuracy and resolution makes it compelling choice for any LED light measurement need.
GL Spectis 8.0 Features
The Latest Photonic Technology
The optical system of the GL SPECTIS 8.0 spectroradiometer uses the latest technology solutions available in spectroscopy. Mirror / grating / mirror spectrometer platform uses silica transmission grating and a back-thinned type CCD image sensor. The sensor and electronics are thermally stabilized and the software constantly monitors the base line level.
Transmission gratings provide supreme transmission properties and high diffusion efficiency. These characteristics allow to set a very short integration time which is important in high-accuracy light source measurements and can be a crucial factor in ultra-fast production process control applications.
The back-thinned type CCD Hamamatsu sensor offers very high quantum efficiency over a wide spectral range. This helps to achieve more accurate and low noise light measurements in the UV, VIS and NIR ranges. The high optical resolution of this platform makes it an ideal tool for narrow band light source measurements and fast light measurements in industry applications.
Photometric and Radiometric Calibration
An absolute spectral calibration is integrated into each spectrometer before delivery thereby enabling the accurate measurement of different absolute values such as lux, candela or lumen together with radiometric values depending on the measurement accessory installed.
Dark current compensation
The GL Spectis 8.0 spectroradiometer is ready to provide very accurate measurements in different conditions. A temperature sensor installed on the electronic board monitors changes in temperature and automatically compensates for any change in dark current level providing excellent measurement stability.
