MSC15 Spectral Light-Color Meter Product Updates
Internal memory and on-display setting of measurement functions added
Gigahertz-Optik's MSC15 is particularly suited to the measurement of LED based lighting in terms of illuminance, spectrum, color, CRI, PAR and human centric lighting metrics.
The latest updates include internal memory for the local storage of up to ten measurements which can be either managed directly by the MSC15 or by the supplied S-MSC15 software.
In addition a menu for individually switching on and off the many possible display screens has been added.
This touch-screen customization no longer requires connection to a PC thereby simplifying the configuration of the device for individual measurement tasks.
The MSC15 offers simple and intuitive operation, fast display of measurement results and traceable calibration. It can be used to measure any light source, displaying spectral irradiance from 360 nm - 830 nm as well as photometric and colorimetric data including photopic, scotopic and melanopic illuminance, color rendering indices, color temperature and CIE chromaticity. For horticultural applications, the MSC15 also directly displays PAR PPFD in μmol/m2/s.
Melanopic illuminance measurement capability has been added to the MSC15 spectral-light-color meter based on CIE TN 003:2015. The 'melanopic response' has become the basis for today's evolving recommended practices in circadian-based lighting or human centric lighting if you prefer.
The compact and user-friendly MSC15 spectral light meter is an inexpensive entry-level light-color-spectral measurement solution for any type conventional and solid-state light source such as LEDs and OLEDs. The MSC15 measures photopic and scotopic illuminance, color properties, CCT, CRI, PAR and Bilirubin effective irradiance and now melanopic illuminance and irradiance.
