San Diego, CA, August 5, 2003. - Gamma Scientific has unveiled the GS-1253-LED, a laboratory-grade LED spectroradiometer that offers high linearity, color accuracy and repeatability at a mid-range price. Ideal for production line testing, the GS-1253-LED can measure a broad range of LED spectral characteristics, including luminous intensity, color purity, spectral luminous intensity, low uncertainty chromaticity coordinate measurement, dominant wavelength and correlated color temperature of white illuminares.
"The GS-1253-LED is truly in a class of its own," said Richard Austin, president of Gamma Scientific. "No other LED measurement system on the market can match its performance. Yet it's competitively priced - just $15,500 - making it an exceptional value."
Several factors contribute to the GS-1253-LED's superior capability. These include leading-edge photodiode-array technology, very-low thermal-expansion materials and a proprietary LED mount that meets the recommended standard from CIE Pub. No. 127. All are incorporated into Gamma Scientifics' popular RadOMA platform, a durable optoelectrical design proven in hundreds of production lines worldwide.
"Conventional CCD-based measurement solutions simply cannot keep up," states Austin. "For example, we recently performed side-by-side comparisons with leading CCD-based systems. The GS-1253-LED consistently delivered 0.1 nm versus 3.0 nm repeatability in dominant wavelength. Moreover, its near real-time data acquisition-33 samples per second-was about 33% greater than the nearest competitor."
The GS-1253-LED is available in 360- to 780-nm spectral ranges (380- to 810-nm nominal also available), and includes auto dynamic range optimization, an IEEE-488 interface, USB interface and powerful Windows-based control/analysis software.
NIST-traceable and self-calibrated, the GS-1253-LED saves the user considerable time and money by eliminating downtime. Calibrations are easily performed via the Windows-based software and a range of highly stable and repeatable light sources available from Gamma Scientific. The system can also tie to a new low uncertainty detector-based candela standard.
