Saelig Announces Availability of Portable Lab-Grade Precision Spectrometer

Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced the GL Spectis 5.0 Touch - a state-of-the-art portable instrument for obtaining light measurement data ranging from NIR to UV with laboratory accuracy. Each GL Spectis 5.0 Touch Spectrometer is individually calibrated to deliver precise, accurate, and quick results, making it ideal for measurements of light sources such as LEDs, LED assemblies, halogen and fluorescent lamps, photobiological safety lamps, and LCD displays, using a range of available optical probes. Unique features of the GL Spectis 5.0 Touch include: laboratory accuracy, extended spectral range from 200 to 1050nm, very high resolution (0.5nm), an OSR system for stray light reduction, and compatibility with a wide range of available integrating spheres and probes for measuring almost any light source from 1 - 200,000lux (Illuminant A).

Using a precision 2048 pixel CCD image sensor with 16-bit A/D, theGL Spectis 5.0 Touch covers 200 - 1050nm - well beyond the optical range  - and the TFT-LCD touch panel on this portable unit directly shows illumination parameters in the familiar CIE chromaticity diagrams. Built-in 802.11b/g WiFi can send results to a nearby PC without needing a physical connection, but the GL Spectis 5.0 Touch does not require a computer for taking measurements since it immediately shows critical data on its display. Navigation is very simple and critical parameters can easily be displayed:  full spectral profile (Spectral Power Distribution), CIE chromaticity charts, color coordinates and peak values, lighting parameters like CCT, CRI and individual R1 - R14 indices, etc.  A 4GB Micro SD card also holds results as they are taken.  Features available in the GL Spectis 5.0 Touch allow the user to perform many different measurement tasks. With the optional GL SPECTRO SOFT either the USB or Wi-Fi connection can be used to create measurement setups designed to individual needs.

Absolute spectral calibration is factory-integrated into each GL Spectis 5.0 Touch spectrometer, enabling accurate measurements of absolute values such as lux, candela and lumens, together with radiometric values too, depending on which self-detecting measurement accessory is installed. This calibration meets the requirements of leading standards institutes and is confirmed by the manufacturer's certification.

Compact (111 x 210 x 58mm) and lightweight (1.5kg), the GL Spectis 5.0 Touch provides reliable results and lasting performance for anyone involved in the lighting industry. Designed and made in Europe by GL Optic, a leading supplier of standardized light solutions, itis available now from GL Optic's USA distributor Saelig Company. Inc. (NY).
