XiTRON's Portable Micro-Spectrometer Offers Lab Instrument Performance in LED Lighting Applications
Flexible micro-spectrometer addresses LED illumination needs: lighting design, fixture verification, LED binning, lamp/LED spot testing, LED driver testing; portable, user-friendly lighting-measurement tool is well-suited for engineering lab and field use
SAN DIEGO -- XiTRON Technologies, producer of precision test and measurement equipment for industrial and consumer product development, quality control and manufacturing, introduces the XT1600 micro-spectrometer designed to meet the needs of the LED lighting industry. The flexible unit performs essential lighting measurements (lux, lumens, CRI, CCT, CRI/CQS, PPF and color) in the field, in production and in the development process. It exceeds the performance of competing portable devices by providing laboratory-grade photometric measurement accuracy (±0.0004 xy coordinates for CIE-1931, 5-500 lux), resolution (4.2-5 nm) and repeatability (±0.04% + 1 digit) – and yet is priced to cost thousands of dollars less.
"The XiTRON XT1600 is unlike other portable micro-spectrometers on the market that require a PC to collect data and view results," said Alan Armstrong, XiTRON Technologies' Director of Operations. "Our hand-held, battery-operated unit not only provides users with a portable piece of test equipment that gives instant feedback and results, it also offers full reporting capability with a built-in color touch-screen display, plus a full set of exportable pre-configured reports and editable Excel spreadsheets."
The flexibility and portability of the XT1600 micro-spectrometer makes it well-suited to a range of applications, including spectrum testing and analysis, light measurement (lux, lumens), LED binning, ISO/CIE standards compliance: color rendering index (CRI), correlated color temperature (CCT), color quality scale (CQS), CRI/CQS, photosynthetic photon flux density (PPF) and color.
