Lighting Sciences Inc. Series 6400T goniophotometer accepted for IES 2010 Progress Report
Date Announced: 08 Sep 2010
Lighting Sciences Inc. is very pleased to announce that its Series 6400T goniophotometer has been recognized by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Report Committee as “a unique and significant advancement to the art and science of lighting.”
The IES has informed Lighting Sciences Inc. that the Moving Mirror Goniophotometer Series 6400T has been selected for 2010 as a significant engineering advancement for the lighting industry. This recognition is primarily because the Series 6400T incorporates a triple amplifier system that automatically optimizes amplifier sensitivity for all different intensity ranges during a test.
The multiple amplifier and electronic channels developed for the Series 6400T enable lighting laboratories to run an entire indoor photometric test in three minutes, without manual intervention or concern for the accuracy of low-end intensity measurements. Data collection occurs at a rate of 18,000 readings per second, allowing the mirror to rotate at 4 rotations per minute (RPM) or faster throughout the entire test.
Improved data analysis software also has been developed for the instrumentation. The new software was written to facilitate the communication of Solid State Lighting (SSL) data.
The software includes the Energy Star Reporter™, that automatically analyzes spectral and photometric test data and provides a one-page Energy Star® compliance report for any selected fixture style, per EPA/DOE specifications. The Energy Star Reporter Summary can accompany every SSL-related IES file created by the new goniophotometer system, and indicates success with a simple pass/fail displayed for each specified test. The compliance summary enables those with only a little photometric knowledge to understand the test results in seconds.
Developed to provide a stringent 100% Quality Control system for the manufacture of the exterior lighting for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the Lighting Sciences Inc. Series 6400T goniophotometer is now available for commercial lighting photometry.
